Public Art in Abingdon-on-Thames
There are some memorable pieces of public art in the town. There are notable modern scuptures such as those in Bury Street, near one entrance to the Abbey grounds, in Thames View. Also, find pieces on buildings and at ground level such as at Ock Bridge Place and at the MG garden. District Council has taken the initiative to place items and a map and cycle tour of these covers a large part of the town.
Many of the art works have been provided through the Percent for Arts scheme, which encourages developers of large new building schemes to make a contribution to a local arts project – see here and here for detailed information on Art in Abingdon.
