Leighton House Museum, the spectacular former studio-house of PRA Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896), is is currently undergoing a major project to renovate visitor facilities, add exhibition space and provide public access for all. A key part of this project has been the construction of a spectacular helical staircase, located at the opposite end of the building to Leighton’s famous Arab Hall.
Oneness is a large-scale contemporary mural by Iranian artist Shahrzad Ghaffari, which has been commissioned to decorate the walls of the new helical staircase. Inspired by the unique fusion of East and West that is the legacy of the house, the artwork celebrates the completion of the major renovation of the building and will become a permanent, meaningful link between its past, present and future.
HELP TRANSFORM THE NEW HELICAL STAIRCASE INTO AN EVERLASTING ARTWORK
To complete this project and bring Oneness to everyone’s lives, Leighton House needs to raise £17,300. In return for your donation, you will be able to choose among a range of bespoke rewards inspired by this unique piece of art and Leighton’s treasures.
