ART UK SCULPTURE PROJECT

Dorich House Museum is delighted to be included in Art UK’s unique sculpture project. Launched on 22 February 2019, the first thousand sculptures are now available online, free of charge via www.artuk.org. An estimated 150,000 more will follow by the end of 2020. These first images, and their associated digital records, form part of the largest sculpture cataloguing project ever undertaken in the UK. By the project’s conclusion, the UK will become the first country in the world to create a free-to-access online photographic showcase of its publicly owned sculpture, for everyone’s enjoyment, learning and research. The project brings together sculptures from the length and breadth of the UK, from Shetland to the Channel Islands, from Northern Ireland to the Isle of Man.
