We have reached – and surpassed! – our crowdfunding target of £6,000, which means that we will be able to commission artist Emily Allchurch to create a new artwork about Manchester, inspired by Valette's Albert Square Manchester 1910. Emily's new work will join Valette's painting in our collection, after we've held an exhibition of her work, including her series Tokyo Story.
Thanks to everyone who donated and helped us to reach 100%. There are still 10 days to go until the 27 November funding deadline, and there are still some wonderful rewards left, including a limited-edition print of Emily's commission, plus photobooks, tickets to the exhibition opening, fans designed by Emily and more!
Any money raised over and above the total will go towards making the exhibition happen.
Update: the limited-edition print of the commission is now SOLD-OUT.
