Information about this scheme

Sculpture in the City 2014 features 14 sculptures displayed across the Eastern City Cluster. The sculptures have been loaned to the project for one year and in May - June 2015 will be de-installed and returned to the artists or galleries. Each sculpture has been carefully sited giving consideration to the surrounding environment including buildings, construction sites and pedestrians. The temporary nature of the artworks ensures it remains dynamic, responding to the constantly changing urban environment of this part of the City. The selected pieces are all robust, easy to maintain and fit for outdoor display. Each sculpture is accompanied by an information sign. Delivered through a successful and positive partnership between local businesses and the City of London, Sculpture in the City provides a focus for school and community events which promote the City’s cultural offer. These events encourage the wider community to visit the City, participate in free tours or activities and interact with the sculptures, buildings and City environment.
