Richard Reed Blogs About Art Everywhere

Following an outstanding successful launch in 2013 with help and support from the great British public Art Everywhere is back again for its second year! Again, we shall be adorning and gracing our streets and transport systems with astounding works of art to make that trip to and from work or school a little bit more interesting and special. And, once again, you the public have voted for your favourite pieces from regional and national collections to create an exposition worthy of any major gallery in the world. The difference being with this exhibition it has been crowdfunded, plus it is entirely free for all to enjoy around the UK.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of our partners from Clear Channel and other media owners in the poster industry, along with partners including Art Fund and Easyart, plus Vue who have made this year’s exhibition a little more extra-ordinary by showing the exhibition on their screens across the summer.
A top new addition to Art Everywhere this year sees an exclusive reveal of a commissioned artwork by a world-renowned artist – all to be revealed on 16th July on digital sites around the UK including the Trafford Centre in Manchester and Coventry House in London’s Piccadilly.
We’ve assembled your selected list of works for our exhibition and posters will be printed and distributed across the UK ready for your viewing from the 21st July for 6 entire weeks providing a stunning backdrop to your summer.
It’s still not too late to help us make this bigger and better than last year and any donation you can make will contribute to increasing the number of posters we can print to reach more places and reward you with your own piece of the Art Everywhere campaign – you can get yourself a limited edition, tote bag, postcard set or even a billboard poster!
