The Beaverbrook Art Gallery wants to see Your Art on Their Walls! Art can bring together a community, and provide a way to respond to and process current events. This community has been through a lot in recent weeks and months, so the BAG wants to see your messages of hope and inspiration on their walls (outside, of course). They’ve started a chalk mural on the outside courtyard walls, and want you to add more! Bring your own chalk and draw some inspiration for passers-by. Please be kind and respectful of others; hate speech of any kind will not be tolerated.
