The front of St Albans town hall could host a 9.5m-high advertising display under new council plans.
A planning application has been submitted for a display onto which would be projected images of popular St Albans features.
These could include the city’s Roman heritage, the War of the Roses, the Ryder Cup, and Eric Morecambe.
Council portfolio holder for leisure services, Cllr Annie Brewster said: “We are looking at the possibility of artistically projecting some of our famous St Albans stories on the front of the building during the construction phase of the city’s new museum and art gallery.
“We could potentially feature a different story on the hour which could become quite an attraction.”
The display is only intended to be temporary while work on converting the building into a museum and gallery is completed.
Images would be beamed from a projector in front of the hall, with the facade of the Grade II-listed building being visible beneath the image.
