Community project - Positive Street Art

The Sherborne Mural in the Old Market Car Park

The Sherborne Mural was unveiled and gifted to the town on Friday 12 June 2015.  This large scale piece of public art depicts the history of Sherborne from the 700's to the present day in full colour. The historical timeline was produced by Katherine Barker which was interpreted into dramatic images by Mike Fenton-Wilkinson.  Community workshops kick started the painting with artists Mike Fenton-Wilkinson and Peter Sheridan adding the finishing touches.  

ArtsLink was delighted to able to support this community project as part of its Big Lottery funded TakepArt project and to have been involved in the practicalities of making this vision become a reality.  It took 20 months from conception to finishing the work and engaged many children, families and young people along the way.
