Guest Blog: Newmarket in colour

This summer, the National Horseracing Museum is hosting a major contemporary art exhibition, Mutiny in Colour, featuring the likes of Banksy, Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst and many more. To capitalise on the influx of visitors, Discover Newmarket, working alongside a number of other organisations and local groups, has co-ordinated a complementary creative community initiative – Newmarket in Colour.

This has developed into a huge community project that has so far involved almost 1,000 participants in the creation of 10 murals located around Newmarket, all inspired by the Museum’s street-art exhibition. Local artists and the community have come together and the result is a vibrant and colourful welcome to visitors to the town this summer.

 Brampton Manor Care Home

Team at the Brampton Manor Care Home dedicated a weekly creative session to designing a horse board. The team came up with the idea of residents using their fingerprints to make individual flowers and then putting their initials in the centre. The result is a very beautiful, personalised mural, below.
