Robert Montgomery Reveals New Artwork at Centre of Campaign for Royal Society for Blind Children

At dusk on 31 January, The Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC) revealed the sculptural commission, In Our Dreams We See Forever (2018), by internationally acclaimed artist, Robert Montgomery. The custom-designed vehicle with light-poem and video-installation lit up Granary Square, King's Cross, kickstarting a 6-month nationwide tour.

Topped by one of Montgomery’s trademark light poems, In Our Dreams We See Forever, includes Braille statements from visually impaired children so that the sculpture only fully reveals itself to Braille-literate blind audiences...

Branch Arts were approached by the Royal Society for Blind Children to find an artist to raise awareness of the 22,000 blind and partially-sighted children and young people in England and Wales.

We are delighted to announce that from a wide selection of artists presented to the charity by Creative Branch, Robert Montgomery has been commissioned to create a sculpture to be launched nationally in January 2018.
