A giant rubber duck for Barry?
The giant yellow sculpture, created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, has been transported around the globe since 2007, visiting cities including Londn, Sydney, Sao Paulo, and Amsterdam.
The artist hopes the work will bring people together and encourage a connection with public art.
The arrival of the giant rubber duck would attract media interest, become a social media talking point, and highlight Barry’s brand as the playground of Wales and its position for tourists from England as the nearest beach resort to Birmingham and the West Midlands and also the first Welsh sandy beach seaside resort for the West Country.
Can you imagine a giant rubber duck in the Old Harbour or Whitmore Bay?
If you like the idea, what should we do to make it happen?
