The first phase of Illuminated River, the artwork that will eventually span up to 14 central London bridges, is now accessible online via the Google Arts & Culture platform. In these uncertain times where access to our public realm is limited, the ability to experience art, city landmarks and outdoor heritage is essential to our wellbeing and maintaining a certain level of 'normal'.
Last July, artist Leo Villareal and British architecture practice Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands illuminated London, Cannon Street, Southwark and Millennium bridges - the first phase of the project that will be the longest public art commission in the world once complete. The second phase, Blackfriars, Waterloo, Golden Jubilee, Westminster and Lambeth bridges, will be completed in Winter 2020/2021.
