‘Sculpture in the City is hugely popular with workers, residents and visitors in the Square Mile, and is underpinned by a successful partnership forged between the City of London Corporation, the art world, and local businesses. These leading art works enliven the Square Mile, generate debate among those who view them, and our support for Sculpture in the City underlines our commitment to promoting the arts and culture in the City.’
