Event Details

Who? The Wallfower Project is a collective of local artists (known as LOCI) under the Direction of mural specialist Dr Jody Patterson (Associate Professor, Art History, Plymouth University).
What? The Wallflower Project will design and paint public murals on walls across the city in the run-up to Mayflower 2020 celebrations. The year 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims setting sail from Plymouth to America, to be marked through a range of public events and commissions. The Seafarer will be the first public mural to be executed by The Wallflower Project and will begin in August 2017. With the Mayflower in mind, the design for the wall is rich in references to sea travel, navigation and the city’s own ocean sights. Subsequent murals will explore aspects of Plymouth’s rich history with the goal of bringing art to new audiences outside gallery spaces; encouraging wide interest in local heritage; generating and contributing to civic pride; and furthering the city’s burgeoning identity as a centre for arts and culture. As the Mayflower anniversary will bring international attention to Plymouth, the public murals will showcase the city, its people, and their history, and also promote creative talents developing within the city.
