Alumna set to display artwork in Times Square

Multicoloured artwork with a square shape

Francesca Edwards, who graduated with a degree in Fine Art in 2020, has won a competition in collaboration with Arts Thread to have her artwork 'Light Painting' displayed in the Nasdaq global headquarters office in Times Square, New York City.

Francesca will see her work printed in large-scale and framed to be displayed permanently on the 26th floor in the global headquarters. To celebrate this, her artwork will be further promoted on the Nasdaq 7-story Tower in Times Square and on the Nasdaq website and social channels.

Speaking of her award, Francesca said:

“As cliché as it sounds it really does feel like a dream come true, I never thought I’d have my work seen in Times Square, New York, especially at such an early stage in my career.” 

Since graduating, Francesca has continued to work on developing her practice and has set up her first artist studio. She is also studying for her master’s degree in Curation, whilst working alongside creating new collections and commissions. 

Congratulations to Francesca.
