New "Titanic" Mural Unveiled at Titanic Belfast

(Titanic Belfast) Titanic Belfast

A new "Titanic" mural, which celebrates Belfast’s heritage, has been unveiled at Titanic Belfast, marking the anniversary of when the famous ship was launched and drawing a massive crowd of over 100,000 people from all over the world to the banks of the Lagan.

The mural is a collaboration between local artists Terry Bradley and Friz, and it aims to attract crowds by shining a spotlight on the city’s history, as well as its contemporary art movement. The recreation of Terry Bradley’s "Docker’s Rest" is located at Hickson’s Point, Titanic Belfast’s newest shipyard-themed hospitality space, which serves up traditional music, food and drink for locals and visitors alike. The mural is appropriately placed, as it depicts men from the Sailortown and the docks, and it showcases Belfast’s maritime heritage as well as the city's traditions of murals and hospitality.

Titanic Belfast is a six-floor building including nine interpretive and interactive galleries that explore the sights, sounds, smells and stories of Titanic, as well as the city and people that made it. The building houses temporary exhibits, a banqueting suite, education and community facilities, catering and retail space, and a basement car park. The tourist attraction offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the construction of RMS Titanic and the story of Northern Ireland’s industrial and maritime heritage.

The visitor attraction previously welcomed over 5 million visitors from over 145 different countries and hosted over 2,500 business and leisure events. The mural is the latest piece of public animation after the Glass of Thrones installations.
