Public Art

As well as housing Tate Liverpool, the home of modern contemporary art in the North, Liverpool also has more public art than any other UK city outside of London.

Throughout the city you’ll not only find artwork proudly displayed, but also a selection of ‘hidden’ art installations.

Something not so hidden is the ‘Dazzle Ferry’ – the traditional Mersey Ferry, which is the only operational ferry that has been ‘dazzled’ by artist Sir Peter Blake. The art was partly commissioned by the Liverpool Biennial, the UK’s contemporary arts festival that showcases newly commissioned art from all over the world.

The Liverpool Biennial has also brought artworks to the city centre such as the ‘Penelope’ piece in Wolstenholme Square.

The city has a number of famous public art pieces such as the Superlambanana, the bright yellow sculpture which weighs almost eight tonnes, stands at 17ft tall and is intended to be a cross between a banana and a lamb. It was designed by Japanese artist Taro Chiezo.

One of Liverpool’s newest but now most iconic pieces of art, is The Beatles Statue located on the Waterfront. The tribute to the Fab Four was unveiled on 4th December 2015 by Julia Baird, John Lennon’s sister.

Liverpool has also been host to high profile public artistic events, such as La Princesse and the Giants.
