Art Everywhere Is Everywhere

Uncategorized

Art Everywhere – the national exhibition of brilliant British artwork – goes live today, on a network of 30,000 billboards and digital screens across the UK.

Last year (as I wrote here) was good…but this year promises to be even better, with world-famous artist Antony Gormley donating a specially made piece for the exhibition (called Feeling Material) which can be seen on digital screens in Manchester and Piccadilly Circus, and also downloaded here. His work is among 25 pieces being shown all over the UK, and you can watch the man himself discussing the initiative with Art Everywhere founder, Richard Reed below.

As you will know, outdoor media owners such as Clear Channel, Exterion Media, JCDecaux, Ocean Outdoor and Outdoor Plus have donated the sites for the campaign, and it is estimated that 90 per cent of the UK population will have the opportunity to see some of the work during the run. Other partners for the UK campaign include 101, the Art Fund, Tate, Posterscope, Vizeum, Easyart and Facebook – who hosted an online vote to choose the work.

The big question I know you are all asling is what my favourite piece is? Well they’re all gorgeous, but being a Suffolk boy I could never resist a Constable. Exquisite!

Have a great week,
