At Art UK we believe in democratising access to art. Art UK is a charity working to transform access to the nation’s art collections. Our website is the showcase for art in every UK public collection and is an ambitious collaboration between over 3,250 British institutions. Our current major project is documenting and digitising the nation’s sculptures – both in collections and in public spaces. The first of around 150,000 sculptures joined the site in February 2019. The art you see on Art UK is for everyone – for enjoyment, learning and research. These artworks are in museums, universities, town halls, hospitals and other civic buildings across the country. As 80% of this art is not on public view, Art UK allows you to see art that you would not normally be able to visit. Art UK is free for all to enjoy. It is through the generosity of a wide range of public and private funders that we are able to make this possible.
