Over the summer our technicians have been busy painting an exciting and vibrant new permanent artwork at the entrance to the Bonington Gallery. We invited alumnus, Jon Burgerman to design a series of large-scale murals that aim to reflect the creative processes, enjoyment and energy of the School of Art & Design.
