A colourful new graphic reflecting North Lincolnshire Museum’s collection has been installed on the front of the Oswald Road building in Scunthorpe.

The artwork has been designed by artist-in-residence Tracy Satchwill using fun, quirky and surreal images to represent each of the museum’s galleries.

Taking two months to design, the eye-catching graphic is 21 metres by 2.8 metres and has been created with funding from Arts Council England.

It will hopefully enhance the existing building as well as attract more visitors to the museum.

She said: “It’s been wonderful going through the museum’s rich archives and creating something playful. I hope Scunthorpe enjoys the view.”

The Museum tells the story of North Lincolnshire through exhibition displays exploring geology, local history, social history and archaeology.

Visitors are asked to pre-book a visiting slot in order to limit the number of people at the site at any one time.
