King’s Lynn Arts Centre paints the Bigger Picture

Local masterpiece to be created from hundreds of sections

Artists are being asked to help paint the Bigger Picture to support Lynn Arts Centre.

The new trust which is running the centre is asking hundreds of artists from clubs and associations to paint a section of a mystery picture.

None of them know what the final giant masterpiece will be - it will be unveiled in September.

Each participant will receive a photocopy of a section of the painting they will contribute, along with a board to paint on.
