Over 38,000 votes were received via Facebook (facebook.com/arteverywhereuk) in the process to select the nation’s favourite works which will be shown on bus shelters, underground stations, roadside billboards, motorway services, national rail networks, shopping centres and airports across the UK. 90% of the population will have an opportunity to see a work of art at an outdoor site during the summer. The art will also be shown in a national Art Everywhere on-screen exhibition shown in over 1,000 Vue cinema screens in the UK in August.

As part of today’s launch, Antony Gormley also unveiled a specially-commissioned digital artwork for Art Everywhere which will be available for the public to download for free. The work entitled Feeling Material will be shown on digital poster sites across the UK, including London’s Waterloo Station and Coventry House, Piccadilly Circus, and in Manchester’s Trafford Centre, as well as on motion screens in the back of over 2,000 black cabs. Antony Gormley has also donated 100 signed limited edition works to be gifted to the first 100 supporters contributing £950 or more to Art Everywhere. Funds raised will support the costs of print and production for Art Everywhere to be bigger and better, ensuring works of art reach more poster sites. Both the digital and limited edition works will be available from 16th July until 31 August from arteverywhere.org.uk

Antony Gormley said of his involvement in Art Everywhere: "Works in public collections form an important part of our collective visual memory, marking a particular place, time and person. It is great that these works are being celebrated and shared in this way."

Building on the success of the 2013 exhibition, Art Everywhere 2014 will be longer in duration, having been extended across a six week period.

Art Everywhere is a collaborative project presented by the Out-of-Home industry led by Clear Channel, Exterion Media and JCDecaux, including Ocean Outdoor, Storm and Outdoor Plus. Founding partners are Richard Reed (co-founder of Innocent Drinks), the Art Fund, Tate, creative agency 101, Posterscope, Vizeum, Easyart and Facebook. Out-of-Home media owners have once again donated the sites to enable the nation’s favourite British art to be seen right across the UK.

Stephen Deuchar, director of the Art Fund said: "Art Everywhere is a celebration of great British art, with thousands of Brits voting for their favourites to be displayed on poster sites across the country over the coming weeks. The new work by celebrated artist Antony Gormley, made especially for this project, will be a wonderful legacy - and a way of thanking the art loving public, who made the whole initiative possible."
