Local artist’s stunning window design celebrates Cleethorpes heritage

Beautiful art celebrating Cleethorpes’ history

One of Cleethorpes’ landmark buildings has been given a splash of colour by a local artist tasked with honouring the town’s heritage.

Cleethorpes Library have been running a creative project to redesign one of the main window panels at the building, and approached artist Sarah Palmer to create something reflective of the seaside resort.

Depicted in the sketch are The Ferris wheel, The Mouse & Moon, The Boy with the Leaking Boot, The Pier and Cleethorpes Library, all pictured behind paddle boarders enjoying the sunset.

It is now on display at the library for all passers-by to take in and enjoy.

Caroline Moorby, Arts Development Officer, Lincs Inspire said: “The redesign was a great opportunity to be creative and celebrate everything we love about Cleethorpes.

“Sarah’s sketches are so colourful and distinctive, they make us pause to appreciate the beauty we have on our doorstep. We’re delighted with the outcome.”

The sketches are available to buy through the gift shop at Cleethorpes Library, selling unique items by local artists and local history merchandise. The shop is open Monday to Thursday from 8.30am to 5.30pm and 9am to 1pm on Saturdays.

Sarah herself added: “I was so happy to work on this lovely project celebrating some of the landmarks of the area. I hope that my work brightens the front of the library building.”

Sarah’s sketches will also be available from The Shop, located next to the artwork. | Photo: Lincs Inspire
