We invited leading visual artist Morag Myerscough - who previously worked with Brighton Festival on the community 'Belonging' bandstand on the seafront - to make a bold new artwork to amplify the vital need for art in our lives and for our well-being.
A team of wonderful Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival volunteers helped create the work over the course of five sun-blessed days in October, and this message of hope stretches right across the building works currently transforming Brighton Dome's Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre.
This work has also being produced as a signed, hand-made screen print available to buy along with others from The Private Press. All proceeds will go to the support bringing back live performance during these extremely tough times for theatres and arts venues everywhere.
Visit the work on New Road, Brighton and get yourself a ray of sunlight.
“I love Brighton and I was so excited when I was asked to create this new artwork to support Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival. My work is rooted in creating a sense of joy and belonging and I have always felt strongly that we need art in every form to stimulate us and transport us from the everyday, especially at this time, it feels essential for our wellbeing. I hope anyone walking past the mural or hanging my print on their wall will feel that the arts have a positive future are essential and we must help to make sure that the arts have a positive future.” Morag Myerscough
