SPG have worked with artists to identify sculptural works in long-term storage with no current future that they are happy to offer for adoption by communities and organisations. Commercial organisations are charged a fee for adoptions, and those organisations who are not-for-profit or charitable can apply for a subsidised adoption, for pricing info please choose an artwork and select the ‘Enquire about this artwork’ button. Adoptions vary in duration but are generally a minimum of one year.

The Sculpture Adoption Scheme brings sculptural joy into people’s daily lives and tests a new model for circulating artworks, facilitating access to art across diverse communities and alleviating artists of the pressures of storage and space.
