City of Sculpture

City of Sculpture launched in 2010 to promote public art ahead of London 2012. It is now a rolling programme in collaboration with many of London's galleries as well as international galleries and artists to commission and showcase pieces of art.

It includes temporary installations of contemporary and traditional sculpture and is supported by private galleries and sculptors who exhibit at their own expense.

All sculptures need to apply for planning permission and our team will talk you through this process and the costs involved.
