The Face of Suffrage is a new large-scale art installation created to celebrate 100 years of Votes for Women by Helen Marshall and co-produced by GRAIN. It consists of a floor-based, 200 metre square photo mosaic composed of more than 3,500 images of females from across the West Midlands. Located on the concourse of Birmingham New Street Station, it will combine historical images of women involved in the Suffrage movement from the early 1900s and photographs made today by people of women in their lives.
