Calling all artists – can you help brighten a dull brick wall to provide a better outlook for hospital patients?
The plea comes from the Friends of North Walsham War Memorial who are seeking to improve the view from a ward window which currently looks out on to a plain wall.
The plan is to provide an 8ft square mural to fix on the wall to lift the spirits of patients, and their visitors, looking through the window.
Friends chairman Keith Jarvis said: “We would love to be able to improve the outlook – but we need the help of a local artist who has the time create something lovely and colourful.
“It could be sunflowers, or a summery sky – something upbeat that will put a smile on people’s faces, and make a big improvement to a plain boring wall.
“We can provide the materials – such as marine plywood and paints – and have permission from the hospital authorities to put it up.
“If there is an artist out there who could help by giving their time towards this community venture we would love to hear from them to discuss their ideas. The mural could be done in the artist’s studio and installed on completion.
“The role of the Friends is to use money donated to the public to improve the quality of life for patients, staff and visitors this small but important scheme could help do that – and hopefully harness the artistic skills we have here in north Norfolk,” he added.
“And it one project we could progress during lockdown and Covid restrictions, which have put some of our other schemes on ice.”
