Monument for Chelsea Manning is about the ongoing attempt to install a piece of public art in the town of Haverfordwest, Wales where Chelsea’s mother comes from and where Chelsea attended the town’s Tasker Milward secondary school for several years.
The piece of public art in the form of a bronze head and shoulders is on temporary loan to Conway Hall Ethical Society, London. It will remain there until a permanent site in Haverfordwest can be found for the work.
