Apollo
Art Diary

The Line

1 April 2021

This week’s Apollo Art Diary picks out four outdoor sculpture trails and exhibitions that you can still enjoy while the long wait continues for UK museums to reopen…

London’s first dedicated public art walk was launched in 2015; it runs from Greenwich to Stratford, over the Thames and along the River Lea, in three short sections of just over a mile each. The path is dotted with 12 sculptures and installations, making it the perfect Easter hunt for art lovers; the works include a sound installation by Larry Achiampong and a sculpture by Antony Gormley, both on the Greenwich Peninsula, as well as Laura Ford’s enigmatic Bird Boy by the Royal Docks. Find out more from the Line’s website.
