Do you know a Local Legend?
We want to help you celebrate the incredible stories (real and imagined), which make your community such a wonderful place to live!
For over 25 years Gille and Marc have created art in an autobiographical way, embodying their own selves through their iconic characters Rabbitwoman and Dogman and the tale of their unique love story. Local Legends was born out of this realization that we all have a story to tell. Gillie and Marc’s project Local Legends will offer specific communities the chance to have created a custom bronze sculpture that embodies the spirit of who they are!
Gillie and Marc will also be co-funding each statue as part of the Local Legend Project. In taking part, each location will be connected to other Gillie and Marc sculptures in a shared collective network, giving visibility to these unique narratives that continue to shape our sense of cultural identity, and that may otherwise go unheard or be forgotten.
