‘Great Petition’ (2008) by artists’ Susan Hewitt and Penelope Lee is located just south of St Patrick’s Cathedral in Burston Reserve, Melbourne. The sculpture references the Monster Petition of 1891, which saw a collection of 30,000 signatures collected from Victorian women in an effort to gain the right to vote. The votes of paper were pasted to a fabric backing and rolled onto a cardboard spindle, creating a 260 metre long x 200 millimetres wide cultural artefact which takes three people three hours to unroll from one spoil to another. The sculpture was commissioned as a permanent acknowledgement to those who united to bring about change. #greatpetition #melbourne #suffrage #vote #petition #sculpture #publicart #melbourneart #change #burstonreserve #artiseverywhere #susanhewitt #penelopelee #stpatrickscathedral #monsterpetition #womenempowerment
