About

"Dream" is a landmark sculpture located on the former Sutton Manor Colliery in St Helens, designed by world-renowned and award-winning Spanish artist, Jaume Plensa.

The 20 metre high artwork comes in the form of the head of a young girl. Her eyes are closed in a dream-like state.

The sculpture is finished bright white, a stark contrast to the history of the site and the black coal that still lies below the ground there. The contours and reflectivity of the face often change throughout the day, due to changing light and weather conditions.  

Dream was commissioned by ex-miners and St Helens Council and reflects the aspirations of the local community. It was decided that a mining monument was not what they wanted but a forward-looking, inspirational piece. 

Dream is located midway between Manchester and Liverpool, the sculpture is passed by over 35 million vehicles a year on the busy M62.
