We have just received word from Rhodes House that the artwork we commissioned for installation during the 110th Reunion will become part of their permanent collection.
Described as “a wonderful addition to Rhodes House,” the art piece was funded by two Rhodes Scholars: Ann Olivarius, Chair of McAllister Olivarius and Founder of the Rhodes Project, and Dominic Barton, Managing Director at McKinsey & Co., and Chair of the Rhodes Trust's Governance Committee.
Entitled “THEREISNOTACLEARBRIGHTLINE”, the art piece is based on data collected by the Rhodes Project. It celebrates the 1140 women who have held Rhodes Scholarships since 1977 by including their names and professions within a stunning 22-carat gold leaf constellation. The first in a limited edition of six, the piece is the work of London-based, French-Norwegian artist Caroline Bergvall.
