Venue: Chapter House

Dates: 3rd July – 30th September 2014

The special sculpture commissioned by the Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson to remember the 96 victims of the Hillsborough disaster is taking up temporary residence at Liverpool Cathedral. It will remain here until the end of September.

The art–sculpture is a simple band representing the bond between the families, friends and fans who were brought together in a time for the love of the lost ones.  The band is a link between them.  A continuous circle of love bringing the city of Liverpool together to remember.It is a very minimal design to not detract from the lights representing the lost, bringing light to their life.

Specially commissioned by Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool in co-operation with the Hillsborough Family Support Group for the 25th anniversary of Hillsborough.  The Chapter House at Liverpool Cathedral provides a beautiful, peaceful, reflective setting.

The construction is an aluminium substructure covered in an aluminium sheet fabrication. Similar to aviation wings in finish and a brushed polished exterior.
