Mary Seacole Portrait Statue Commission, St George’s Hall, Liverpool

Liverpool – St George’s Hall – Mary Seacole Portrait Statue Commission

St George’s Hall Trust is seeking to commission a portrait statue in marble that will celebrate the life and work of Mary Jane Seacole (1805 – 1881) for the interior of the magnificent Grade I Listed St George’s Hall. Mary Seacole will be the second woman and the first black woman to be commemorated in the Great Hall. It is a significant commission for St George’s Hall, one of Liverpool’s most important public buildings, raising awareness of the contribution of remarkable women who have been overlooked in history.
