Catalogue of public sculpture

The Public Monuments and Sculpture Association and the Public Catalogue Foundation (PCF) are planning to collaborate on a project to create a digital record of all public sculpture in the UK. Similar to the PCF’s recent cataloguing of publicly owned paintings, the cataloguing will involve photographing and documenting all sculpture held in public collections. The PMSA currently has a database of over 10,000 public sculptures. The process is expected to take up to four years to complete subject to funding and the support of partners.
