New open-air art display in Wanstead aims to give plenty of food for thought

Although there are no plans for an art trail this year, artists from Art Group Wanstead will start a pop-up display on Christ Church Green’s chain-link fence on 3 July, with a view to making it a monthly event.

“At the very least, it will add colour and interest for local people and visitors to enjoy and contemplate. But, who knows? The idea could eventually become a little Bayswater Road,” said the art group’s founder, Donna Mizzi, referring to the landmark display covering Hyde Park fences on Sundays. If the Christ Church Green art experience proves popular, members have some innovative ideas that could be introduced, such as talks and workshops.

“Admittedly, much of its success will depend on the weather!”

The group welcomes all artists with a local connection, and membership is free. Visit
