Whilst visiting London or partaking in a course here at London Art Portfolio, be sure to visit the art installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London, which is just over the bridge from our studios. This installation, created by Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, is to mark the one hundred year anniversary of the start of Britain’s involvement in the First World War. Each of the 888,246 ceramic poppies represents a British military fatality during the war and has been planted with the aid of volunteers.
This extraordinarily thought-provoking installation is available to visit until November 11th.
