Sculpture in the City

Sculpture in the City


Several sculptures have been erected for the third year in the heart of the City of London as part of Sculpture in the City 2013.

I went to the 27th floor of Tower 42 to look down on the area, before being taken on a tour of the sculptures by Sonia Solicari, head of Guildhall Art Gallery.

Gherkin from Tower 42


This year the free outdoor exhibition sees the largest line-up yet, with nine contemporary art installations by world famous artists. Included are two sculptures by Robert Indiana, one being his famous Love sculpture, which is found in cities all over the world and works as an entrance to the site. Also featured is Jake and Dinos Chapman’s ‘The Good’, ‘The Bad’ and ‘The Ugly’, three prehistoric creatures that sit at the base of the Gherkin.

The sculptures will remain for one year; see Visit London to find out more about them.
