Towner Art Gallery, located in Devonshire Park in Eastbourne, England, is looking far more colorful these days.

German abstract artist Lothar Götz gave the gallery's exterior a rainbow-style paint job in honor of its 10th anniversary in the building, according to the Eastbourne Herald.

The project was commissioned by both the gallery and local business Brewers Decorator Centers, which also supplied the bold and beautiful paint colors, the Eastbourne Herald reported.

Götz, who is well known for his large murals, outdoor paintings, and installations, was chosen out of 60 artists and designers who applied to an open call by the gallery, according to Lonely Planet. It’s now one of the biggest murals in the U.K.

“We are thrilled to be commissioning this unique project. I think it’s a fantastic celebration of [color] and design,” said Mark Brewer, owner of Brewers Decorator Centers, to the Eastbourne Herald. “It puts the Towner in the spotlight and is another good reason for people to visit the town.”

It’s true that not only does the new paint job make the art gallery stand out, it also makes it look highly Instagrammable – which can be enough to motivate some photography-loving travelers.

The rainbow of paint will remain on the gallery until May 2020.
