The Sculpture Adoption Scheme is an adoption service for sculptures, seeking to match works of art with new guardians.
There are currently 95 works by 54 artists offered for adoption which can be viewed in our catalogue below.
SPG have worked with artists to identify sculptural works in long-term storage with no current future that they are happy to offer for adoption by community groups and other organisations. The Sculpture Adoption Scheme will bring sculptural joy into people’s daily lives and will test a new model for circulating artworks, increasing access to art ownership and alleviating artists of the pressures of storage and space. Let’s give work hidden in storage a new life!
For documentation of completed adoptions please see here.
