Our Community Mural is on public display!
It’s time to celebrate – We’re holding an official opening on Saturday 26th May 2018 at 1.30pm sharp to launch the display of our community mural. Meet us in Dalston library foyer for a drink, a group photograph and an opportunity to say hello to the other artists involved. The mural can be seen on the external windows of Dalston Library, facing Dalston Square. There is also a second mural upstairs on the first floor, inside the children’s library – See the ‘Story Den’ or Under 5’s reading space.
‘Dalston Portrait Collective’ was a community art project run by Art Hoppers, commissioned by Hackney Council and for the public participation of locals and families in Dalston in the spring / summer of 2016. The public at large was invited to make a portrait drawing of themselves, their friends or family for a community mural of faces to be applied to the windows of Dalston Cllr James Library in Hackney!
We’re proud to announce that the mural is now up for all to enjoy and looks glorious!
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO TOOK PART IN THE PROJECT! The drawings are beautiful, individual and represent a broad age range from toddlers to grandparents.
