With distinguished artist, Laury Dizengremel, we have created a beautiful new sculpture to commemorate the literary icon, Virginia Woolf. This is the first ever full-size bronze statue of the writer in the world. Be part of this historic project and help us install and unveil the sculpture this autumn!
Thanks to the hundreds of special people who have donated to the campaign so far and enabled the elegant artwork to be made and patinated in bronze. Please help us with a further amount for the unveiling and associated literary events to come.
Many writers, artists and public figures have praised the interactive design of Virginia Woolf seated on a bench. You can read more about our campaign at https://www.aurorametro.org/virginia-woolf-statue
