Cromer Artspace is a new charity with the aim of bringing public art to Cromer.
The Bigger Picture project will see the group bringing great works of art to the streets of Cromer, displaying full- size reproductions of famous paintings in various outdoor locations around the town.
The first pictures in the series are
- ‘Children’s Games’ by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, which depicts over 200 children playing more than 80 different games, this was displayed in Garden Street, Cromer and is now ‘resting’ before rehanging.
- Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck, one of those paintings that everyone swears they’ve never seen nor heard of until they see it, displayed in New Street on the wall of Bookworms.
- Tiger in a Tropical Storm, also known as Surprised!, by of Henri Rousseau is being shown in Garden Street, Cromer
This will be followed by other well-known paintings in different locations over the next few months.
The project is sponsored by North Norfolk District Council and Cromer Town Council. With thanks to Cromer Community Centre and Bookworms.
