NORWALK, CT –World famous Paparazzi Dogs have made their Connecticut debut at Circle Hotel Fairfield and Hotel Hi-Ho. Paparazzi Dogs, a collection of four globally-recognized sculptures by Australian husband-and-wife team Gillie and Marc Schattner, will be on display at the Fairfield, CT boutique hotels through mid-July.
Ed Gormbley, managing director of the real estate investment firm that owns the hotels, is a longtime art enthusiast himself and is thrilled to be welcoming the life-sized sculptures to Connecticut. “The playful Paparazzi Dogs have brought happiness to locals and travelers across the globe. We’re excited to be able to offer them a ‘home’ at our hotels, and look forward to seeing our community interact with them,” remarked Gormbley.
In an effort to encourage community interaction, Circle Hotel Fairfield and Hotel Hi-Ho have launched social media contests on their respective channels, wherein users may share photos of themselves being snapped by the Paparazzi Dogs using hashtag #PaparazziDogsCT for a chance to win a night at one of the hotels. “We’re excited to see these photos, we’re hoping people get creative with them,” added Gormbley.
Gillie and Marc’s whimsical Paparazzi Dogs sculptures have gone from being an art experiment about photographing celebrities to being sought-after celebrities in their own right – and Gormbley believes they’ll quickly become sought-after celebrities right here in Fairfield County. The artists share Gormbley’s sentiment, saying “We’re so excited that our Paparazzi Dogs are in Connecticut,” said Gillie. “They’ve travelled the globe taking photos, and now they’ve arrived in Fairfield. We look forward to seeing the public’s reaction!”
