Art Everywhere

Sir Peter Blake has launched the world's largest open-air art show: Art Everywhere. From a list of 100 British artworks, the public chose 57 to appear on 22,000 billboards, bus stops and other sites in cities, towns and villages across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The idea was conceived by Richard Reed, who founded the Art Everywhere website to poll public views. The public's favourite painting is John William Waterhouse's brilliantly evocative The Lady of Shalott (1888). (CLICK for a larger graphic.) The exhibition runs between 12-25 August (CLICK).
