About Sculpture in the City

In the heart of the City of London, the oldest part of the capital, you’ll find exciting sculptures from some of the world’s leading artists.

Between now and May 2014 you can discover ten new art installations as The City becomes a sculpture park. From the striking ONE THROUGH ZERO* (The 10 numbers) sculpture by Robert Indiana, the distinctive life-sized figures of Antony Gormley, and three giant steel dinosaurs made by Jake and Dinos Chapman, the free Sculpture in the City exhibition stretches from St. Botolph-without-Bishopsgate to the north and Lime Street to the south, and includes the area around Great St Helen’s and The Gherkin.
