Art UK’s Sculpture Project is a highly ambitious initiative to catalogue the UK’s national sculpture collection. Over 100,000 sculptures – located inside galleries, museums and public buildings and outdoors in parks, streets and squares – will be displayed on the Art UK website for enjoyment, learning and research.

As part of this project, we will be running an extensive programme of learning and engagement activities across the country. This includes:

  • Masterpieces in Schools
    The unique initiative will see 125 loans of sculpture from collections and artists taken into schools for a day of hands-on learning. Find out how you can get involved in this free opportunity.
  • Sculpture Around You
    75 events developed with museums and community groups to bring sculpture to the widest possible audience
  • Films
    25 films about sculpture made with young people, 25 films made by schools across the UK and 10 films highlighting contemporary sculpture practice
  • Work experience
    25 work experience days for young people to learn about artwork digitisation and work opportunities in the museum sector
