Global Rainbow is an ongoing public artwork by renowned Artist, Yvette Mattern, sharing a vision of hope and peace for 2021.
The artwork was beamed from Birmingham North-West towards the Black Country over the New Year period.
Global Rainbow comprises seven rays of laser light representing the colour spectrum of a natural rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.
The artwork has been presented across the world over the past decade: from New York and Las Vegas to Sao Paulo and Berlin.
The installation was presented by Birmingham Hippodrome as part of Global Streets, a national project funded through Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants.
