The posters on St John's House

Visitors to Lichfield have been enjoying a number of giant posters that have sprung up on buildings across the city.

They have been put up by local artist Peter Walker as part of the project 52 Weeks of Art.

The posters, which feature pieces by local amateur and professional artists of all ages, were displayed to coincide with The Lichfield Festival.

Peter explained:

“With thousands of visitors descending on Lichfield to enjoy the many highlights of this year’s festival, I thought it would be a good opportunity to show the wealth of artistic talent we have in Lichfield.

“These posters are a great conversation point, and make a gallery of the whole city. I hope visitors and residents enjoy looking at them.”

The posters have been displayed on prominent buildings across the city, including District Council House, Lichfield Garrick, St John’s House, HSBC, Pool House, La Boutique and Keelys Solicitors, as well as around the Fuse Festival. They are on a variety of themes, but all inspired by Lichfield and famous artists of the 20th century.

Councillor Louise Flowith, Lichfield District Councils Cabinet Member for Tourism said:

“We thought this was an exciting project and were delighted to be a part of it. The posters add a splash of colour to the city, and I expect they are inspiring lots of debates by city residents, workers and visitors.”
