‘Women Like You’ is the first contemporary portrait of Emmeline Pankhurst – created by photo-mosaic containing 10,000 images of inspirational women sent in by members of the public. Each photo celebrates the extraordinary lives of ordinary women: grandmothers, mothers, aunties and sisters; best friends, teachers, colleagues, scientists and politicians to peace-workers – in short women like you!
The portrait stands at 2900mm x 2050mm (approx 10ft x 6ft) and will be accompanied by 4 images taken from the top of the portrait to enable people to see the photos that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to, plus a selection of stories recorded with Manchester Women when the portrait was exhibited at Manchester Art Gallery.
A moving tribute of celebration and tragedy skilfully executed by artist Charlotte Newson and described as a poignant and beautiful celebration of women.
On Saturday 25 February 1030am - 1.00pm, meet Charlotte Newson at the Museum and find out more about how she created the protrait and her inspiration behind it.
Fri 24 Feb 2012 to Fri 2 Mar 2012 10am - 5pm daily
