Jersey’s largest piece of community artwork will be revealed to the public today.

“The Face of Liberation” is being unveiled to celebrate 75 years since the island was freed from Occupation. It was due to be shown in April but was delayed due to coronavirus.

The huge scale photo mosaic covers over 1,000 square feet of wall space on the Esplanade in St Helier and features 6,070 faces of Jersey residents past and present.

Islanders were asked to send selfies, or pictures of their friends, family and ancestors to form the mosaic. As well as inviting people to send their photos, ArtHouse Jersey also went out to events in the community to meet people and take their photographs. Every photo submitted will be preserved by Jersey Heritage. The artwork will be in place until September 2021.
