Thanks to all 193 donors! We are overwhelmed by the positive response to the campaign and love hearing about what has motivated everyone to support our project. One lovely funder – Karen from Ilkley – shares why she decided to donate:
"I saw the artist's work at Pallant House Gallery in Chichester and admired the vivid abstract walls juxtaposed with the usual neutral gallery scheme. I've always loved the staircase at Leeds Art Gallery and thought this was a great way to support an innovative project.
I particularly like the fact that the new work will complement the brass donors plaques from a previous fund-raising scheme, albeit with more modest donations required today!"
- Karen, Ilkley
We’ve got just a couple more days to raise the remaining 10% – please support in any way you can, spread the word to friends afar and let's make art happen.
