New exhibit gives fascinating insight into The Dream monument

The new exhibit at The World of Glass St Helens features a small prototype version of The Dream, two square pieces of the unique ‘Dream Mix’ which is composed of Spanish Dolomite Marble and English concrete. One of which is signed by the artist Jaume Plensa and includes a self portrait. There is also an original miners tally which inspired the base of The Dream, a limited edition Dream stamp and a copy of the radio times which tells the story of how St Helens were the only site of seven, including major cities, to commission and produce a piece of artwork. A massive achievement.IMG_20150109_140652130_HDR
