A Movement Not A Moment: Mural by Jasmine Thompson

Local artist, Jasmine Thompson has created a powerful new artwork for the front hall of Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.

‘A Movement Not A Moment’ is a mural that focuses on the poignant moments from the last year and beyond. It highlights how people have come together to instigate huge cultural, political and institutional change, not just in the UK, but globally.

The mural was commissioned by the museum with a generous donation from Simon Baker, a long-time supporter of Bristol Museums Development Trust.

Thanks to Simon’s donation, we were able to hold an open call out for commissions. Jazz was selected as the winning artist and you can now see her finished work, A Movement Not A Moment, in the front hall of Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.
