This summer, the UK is the world's largest art gallery...

This summer, the UK is the world's largest art gallery...

 

This summer, in a bid to turn the UK into the 'world's largest art gallery', posters of classic artworks will be displayed across the country.

"Art is for everyone and everyone who has access to it will benefit from it", said Damien Hurst, one of the artists supporting the project.  

The Art Everywhere exhibition, running for 2 weeks from 10th - 25th August will transform thousands of poster sites and billboards. "This project is amazing and gives the public a voice and an opportunity to choose what they want to see on their streets." Said Damien Hirst

By choosing your top 50 British artworks, the public can help curate the exhibition. A shortlist will be on the Art Everywhere website from 24th June.

Art Everywhere is a charitable project founded by Richard Reed, co-founder on Innocent Drinks in collaboration with the Art Fund, Tate and the poster industry.

"This is a joyful celebration with no agenda other than to flood our streets with art and celebrate the creative talents and legacy of this amazing country" said Reed.
