28 Jun The Glastonbury Mural Trail
The Glastonbury Mural Trail this week launches its updated Trail map and new dedicated website. Heart of The Tribe are extremely proud of being a major supporter of this fantastic community project that enhances our towns visual landscape.
You can pick up your free copy of the Trail Leaflet & map from the gallery.
For those of you not familiar with The Mural Trail, it is a collection of over 50 artworks that adorn walls in all areas of the town, painted by local, national and international artists. The artworks are available for all to view free of charge and the project is ever evolving. Curated by our very own Kim von Coels (gallery manager) who has spent many hours making it all happen.
“The Mural Trail is a very rewarding project to work on. I really enjoy having the opportunity to enable such fabulous art all over our town. Although it can be quite hard work at times, the positive feedback I get from the community makes it all worth it.” – Kim
Heart of the Tribe have sponsored several of the artworks including Sunflowers by Faye Suzannah in St. Johns Car Park, Waving Woman by Frank Harwood on Chilkwell Street, most recently Adam & Eve by Frank Harwood on St. Benedicts Close, and the future mural by Jon Minshull that will soon adorn the wall of the Corner Stores on Northload street.
You can download a free pdf or jpeg of the trail map, or view an interactive online version by visiting glastonburymuraltrail.co.uk
The website also has all the information you need about the artists, the history of the trail and lots of behind the scenes photos as well as a section on how you can get involved or support the project by making a donation or buying a print. They even have a selection of original art donated by the artists involved that you can purchase, all profits go towards supporting the project.
