The Great Petition Sculpture in Melbourne



The Great Petition Sculpture

"Great Petition" was created by artists Susan Hewitt and Penelope Lee and launched on 3rd December 2008 to celebrate the 100th year anniversary of women’s right to vote in Victoria.

In this video, Susan and Penelope discuss the meaning of the artwork and the process of making it: from community consultation, choosing the location, developing the design, and fabrication.

"Great Petition" was commissioned by Arts Victoria in collaboration with the City of Melbourne.
