Exemplar was delighted to support the Museum of London on the creation of a giant artwork based on drawings of the archaeological finds and history of Spitalfields that were created by students from Swanlea School in Whitechapel. The 45-foot-long canvas shows five scenes from Roman, medieval, Huguenot, Jewish and present-day Spitalfields. The artwork was brought to life at the Lord Mayors Show by members of the original Spitalfields team and Exemplar, as well members of the local community and traders from Spitalfields Market, walking alongside the canvas in period costume. A great day out and we were delighted to be able to support the Lord Mayor of the City of London, Michael Bear, on his inauguration day.
The finished artwork is now on display at Swanlea School.
