The free guide joins more than 100 cultural institutions around the globe on the Bloomberg Connects app
Canary Wharf Group has launched a new, digital guide on Bloomberg Connects, the free arts and cultural app created by Bloomberg Philanthropies. The Bloomberg Connects app, available for download from Google Play or the App Store, makes Canary Wharf Group’s public art collection accessible for either onsite or offsite visits through photo and audio features.
Canary Wharf is home to London’s largest free to visit outdoor collection of public art. The collection is made up of over 100 pieces across the Estate, a mix of stand-alone sculptures and integrated architectural works. Each piece is created by a highly respected artist and together the collection is like a rollcall of modern artistic talent. Highlights include world-renowned sculptors Henry Moore, Helaine Blumenfeld and Lynn Chadwick and modern graphic artists Camilla Walala and Yinka Ilori.
Keith Watson, Public Art Curator at Canary Wharf Group says: “At Canary Wharf we’ve always believed that art and culture should be accessible for everyone. That’s why we’re joining Bloomberg Connects in the incredible work they do in championing public art, opening up our collection to an even larger audience both on and offsite. It’s fantastic to be listed alongside peers both domestic and international including the Serpentine, Somerset House and the MoMA on this user-friendly platform and we hope it leads to new audiences can discover and enjoy all we have to offer at Canary Wharf.”
