Great North Snowdog The Dog Father, Old Eldon Square, Newcastle upon Tyne
The Dog Father sits on one of the wide paved areas around Old Eldon Square. The Great North Snowdogs are sculptures which have been decorated by a variety of artists which were placed in various places around Tyne and Wear for a 10 week period in the autumn of 2016. Together the artworks formed a trail that had been created with the St Oswald's Hospice charity. At the conclusion of the trail's life the artworks were auctioned off with the profits going to St Oswald's Hospice.
Great North Snowdogs

The Great North Snowdogs were a temporary public art trail in North East England during autumn 2016. 61 snowdog sculptures, each painted individually and sponsored by local businesses, were on public display, mostly within Tyne & Wear. After the end of the exhibition, the sculptures were auctioned with the proceeds going to St. Oswald's Hospice, a charity providing care and support to people with serious or terminal illness.
