Original art on the wall of East 2 at Kings Boston

Mural by Leah Zobott in accommodation block East 2 at Kings BostonAs part of the refurbishment project of Kings Boston, we decided to commission original work to go on the walls of the accommodation blocks our students use on the Pine Manor College Campus.

We chose to work with students on the Illustration degree at the University of Brighton. Art and Design at the University of Brighton is ranked 9th in the UK by The Guardian University Guide 2013 and we were very excited by what the students would come up with. The brief was to create artwork to inspire a home from home feeling, promote multiculturalism and appeal to the young and diverse audience our students represent.

The response from the Brighton Illustration students was enthusiastic and we got a lot of excellent entries.


The first artwork to go up on the wall was created by Leah Zobott, an Illustration student from Minneapolis College of Art and Design, who was on a transfer to Brighton for a term of her degree.

The mural is now decorating a wall of a common room in Block East 2 and it is a homage to Boston, showcasing some of the city’s main attractions. We will be soon unveiling more!
