Sheringham Community Art Project (SCAP)
Sheringham is very fortunate to have highly talented artists, each committing their spare time (often for free), to enhance the public areas around the town with murals and sculptures. Much appreciated by locals and holidaymakers alike, they often tell a story about a particular aspect of Sheringham’s history and heritage.
The panels above show some of the work the team has done over many years, much of it under the stewardship of Colin Seal, who is based at the Sheringham Museum. Future community art projects are getting more and more ambitious for instance in 2023 there are plans to create a lifesize 3D mammoth sculpture on the East Prom seafront near the Sheringham Museum. This will depict a time deep back in history when mammoths and other animals roamed this area and be built from recycled wooden material.
Here is a quick preview of the mock-up for the 3D mammoth sculpture.
The team also has the constant task of maintaining the existing murals many of which are based on the seafront and get weathered quite quickly. On a sunny day at any time of year, you will often find Colin or members of the group on the seafront adding to and refreshing the existing murals. The team is really friendly and approachable and you may even find yourself being encouraged to make a contribution to the works of art.
You can get in touch with Colin at any time by email.
