The eye-catching Gratitude public art installation in praise of the NHS has launched in Birmingham city centre before it tours UK cities this autumn.
Created by global public art producers Wild in Art, Gratitude honours and pays tribute to the ongoing courage and dedication of NHS staff and all key workers during the pandemic and captures the extraordinary experiences that have connected us through challenging times.
Free to visit, the exhibition has been curated in partnership with creative ambassador Dame Zandra Rhodes and consists of 51 sculptures, all designed by professional artists and designers from across the UK.
Birmingham businesses and artists have been at the heart of Gratitude with Greggs, Premier Inn and Selfridges among the sculpture sponsors.
Enclosed by mirrors on two sides, Gratitude creates reflections of the stunning artwork highlighting the endless dedication of all key workers.
You can book tickets to visit Gratitude at Chamberlain Square, Paradise Birmingham (20-30 August 2021) before it moves on to visit Manchester (3-12 September), Edinburgh and London.
In autumn 2021, the sculptures will be auctioned with substantial proceeds donated to NHS Charities Together.
