Guy Reid sculpture limewood

Long Room Sculpture Commission Trinity College Dublin

Guy is delighted to have been selected amongst four artists for the Long Room Sculpture Commission at Trinity College Dublin. The sculptures, the first to be commissioned in more than a century, are to honour the highly significant achievements of four women, Ada Lovelace, Mary Wollstonecraft, Rosalind Franklin and Augusta Gregory, and the contribution they have made to collective knowledge and to human endeavour. There are currently 40 marble busts in this beautiful historic space, all of men. This is a first step to introducing sculptures of women and better representing diversity. The four women honoured were chosen from more than 500 nominations. Guy has been asked to produce that of Augusta Gregory, folklorist, dramatist and theatre-founder.
