'The People's Gallery'

The Bogside Artists have produced a range of works of art in various mediums. They are best known for the wall murals that they painted in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland. In 2008 The Bogside Artists completed another mural so at present there are twelve large wall murals on view in the Bogside. This collection of murals has become known as The People's Gallery.
