In February 2018, the Manchester Munich Memorial Foundation commissioned a local Manchester artist and Red, Daniel Potts, to paint 2 oil pieces, one of the Babes in the dressing room and one of Sir Matt leaving the Rechts der Isar hospital. This was done as a gift to the hospital to commemorate the 60th anniversary and was greatly appreciated. Thanks go to Steve Donoghue for leading this particular project.
The artwork is located in the hospital at the closest point to where Sir Matt and the Babes were treated 60 years previously. To find the artwork, please follow directions using the downloadable map.
