Falmouth Alumni Hew Locke opens new installation to mark the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the Magna Carta

Hew Locke, an Alumnus of Falmouth School of Art, has recently opened a permanent artwork on 15 June 2015 commissioned by Surrey County Council and the National Trust at Runnymede, Surrey, UK.

The Jurors is a permanent piece installed to mark the 800 years since the sealing of the magna carta which took place at Runnymede.  The installation, which visitors are encouraged to sit on and gather, discuss or debate around, consists of 12 bronze chairs, each individually decorated with ‘panels of images and symbols relating to past and ongoing struggles for freedom, rule of law and equal rights’.

To find out more about the artwork a specially created webpage has been set up and can be viewed here: http://artatrunnymede.com/
