Funding for new mural announced

Art Friends Warwickshire has announced its funding of a major new mural for Leamington Mural Festival to be unveiled in October. Confirming the award of around three thousand pounds, chairman of Art Friends Warwickshire, David Howells, met with designer, Tim Rowbottom of Brink Contemporary Arts, to discuss the project at Art in the Park, where Brink was demonstrating mural painting.

The design and location of the mural are secret for now but I can reveal that it will reflect the era of the Victorian terrace where the chosen gable-end is situated,’ said Howells.

Thanks to the fund-raising of members of Art Friends Warwickshire, we can add yet another striking mural to the growing number of artworks appearing around Leamington,’ added Robottom.
