A new College tapestry

Tapestry in the Dining Hall

Sculptor and installation artist Cornelia Parker OBE was commissioned to create a tapestry, inspired by her work ‘30 pieces of silver’, to re-establish the tradition of having an arras hung in the Dining Hall. The threads of the tapestry incorporate a piece of College silver and the tapestry depicts a selection of the College’s most significant silver pieces, including the Founder’s Cup.

Cornelia Parker is a Turner-Prize nominee and official artist for the 2017 General Election.
