Walking Tour: Sheffield’s Public Art

Wed 16 August 2023 , 2pm-3:30pm

Millennium Gallery

Enjoy a 90-minute circular walk around Sheffield city centre and discover a selection of public artworks. 

 

Sheffield has a wealth of public artworks on display, with a wide variety of sculptures, reliefs and statues that decorate the city. On this 90-minute walking tour, you’ll find out more about firm local favourites that you may know well, as well as out-of-the-way artworks you might never have spotted before. You’ll hear about the history of works that have been in place for decades, along with others that have been recently installed this year. 

 

The walk has been compiled using the Sheffield Public Artworks Map, a free digital map that details over 180 public artworks across the city.  

 

It's a circular route, starting and ending at the Millennium Gallery. 

 

This event is a collaboration between Sheffield Visual Arts Group, Wessex Archaeology and Sheffield Museums.
