City of Sculpture

Started prior to the 2012 Olympics, Westminster City Council’s City of Sculpture programme is committed to providing temporary pieces of public art for our residents and visitors to access and is a key commitment in the council’s ‘City for All’ vision.

This unique opportunity has continued to grow and is now a rolling programme collaborating with many of London’s galleries as well as international galleries and artists to commission and showcase pieces of art.

The programme has so far benefited from the involvement of more than 15 galleries, as well as a number of individual artists, spanning more than 20 sites across Westminster.
