A CHICHESTER-based organisation will be exhibiting a selection of sculptures in the capital next year, in aid of the London Olympic Games.

The CASS Sculpture Foundation, which is based in 26 acres of woodland near Chichester, is holding London’s first outdoor exhibition of work by British artist, Tony Cragg.

It is part of the London 2012 Festival, which is run by London 2012 Cultural Olympiad – an organisation designed to give everyone in the UK a chance to be part of the Olympic games through culture and art.

Three of Cragg’s sculptures will be installed along Exhibition Road in Knightsbridge, London. A number of his pieces will also be on display at the V&A museum, the Science Museum and the Imperial College London.

The CASS Sculpture Foundation was established by Wilfred and Jeanette Cass in 1992, as a way to exhibit new sculptures from emerging and established artists. The organisation has to date commissioned over 400 sculptural works.

The sculptures will be on display from June 21 until September 9 2012.
