In this 30-minute free online talk artist Mary Branson discusses her contemporary light sculpture ‘New Dawn’. Commemorating the women’s suffrage campaign, this was the first piece of abstract art commissioned for permanent display in the Palace of Westminster.
Measuring over six metres high, its large scale is intended to reflect the size of the suffrage campaign, and the unique hand-blown glass scrolls that make up its dawning sun reflect the many individuals who were involved in the movement and the special contribution they made to modern democracy.
At the end of the talk, 15 minutes are available for you to ask questions. This is an online event and will be hosted on Microsoft Teams Live Events which you can access through your web browser.
