The Gown by Jennifer Cannon

Redwood City Improvement Association (RCIA) and Fung Collaboratives, have unveiled a brand new public art installation at the Art Kiosk that focuses on the topic of women’s rights.

This new installation, titled “The Gown,” was created by Bay Area artist Jennifer Cannon to represent feminine strength and resilience.

The art installation features a large gown that has been constructed from broken wine bottles and is positioned on top of three red carpeted platforms, which are trimmed in gold.

The bottle-constructed gown’s positioning and style on the red carpet are meant to represent the display of prestige and accomplishment by starlets who have walked the red carpet in Hollywood, past and present, according to the RCIA.

The organization also said that the gown itself is meant to represent femininity, while the juxtaposed sharp and jagged edges of the various bottles represent the fierceness and scars that are retained due to the struggle.

This new art installation can be found on display, day and night, through the Art Kiosk windows—located at 2208 Broadway St.—in Courthouse Square.

It will be on display for public viewing until Saturday, August 6.
