Art UK brings shared economic benefits to UK collections. With over 3,400 participating venues, Art UK created access to the entire collection of the UK's publicly owned oil paintings and sculptures.

As Art UK continues to grow, partner collections are adding prints, photography, drawings and watercolours, making the platform an even more comprehensive showcase of the nation's art.


We ask collections to help us develop a strong, sustainable, shared digital showcase of UK public art. By paying an annual membership fee collections can become Partners, and will receive specific benefits in return for their institutional support, including participation in the Art UK Shop.
