Be part of the exciting Art Installation commissioned by English Heritage for the Hadrian’s Wall 1900 Festival. The Art Installation is a contemporary representation of an iconic Roman structure at Housesteads Roman Fort and will be covered with brightly painted panels depicting influences from history, Roman artefacts and the current day community. The artist, Morag Myerscough, is a celebrated and world-renowned British artist known for her flamboyant and colourful installations world-wide around topical themes, history and heritage with communities at the heart of her work.

The drop-in sessions are an opportunity to be involved in this iconic installation by joining the community painting team that is painting the panels. The artist’s design has been influenced and inspired by content from the community.

All materials are provided. You just need to wear old clothes/overalls and bring lots of enthusiasm!
