In March, ARM decided to support the Glasgow Women’s Library, the holders of the ARM archive, and honour Mary Cronk at the same time (see news 7th March 2022).
Here is the latest update from Sue John the Director of Operations, Resources and Enterprise at the Glasgow Women’s Library:
“We have been working with our designer, Kirsty McBride, to finalise the design to be printed on the wall that will then proudly feature the nominated names. We are working with Glasgow Print Studio to apply the design to the wall using a silk screening method, with individual names being added into the design by a sign writer after that process is complete.
We have changed the chosen wall location to a bigger, more visible and accessible wall, leading from the ground floor up to the Gallery and Community Room spaces. The initial silk screening process will involve us building scaffolding up the stairs and we hope that this will take place in the Spring – I will keep you updated on progress and timescales.
We are looking forward to celebrating Mary Cronk being one of our Women on the Wall, and thank you once again for your support.”
Thank you to all those who have supported us with this project – donations can still be made via our special donation page: https://donorbox.org/women-on-the-wall-mary-cronk.
