The Crossrail Art Programme has been funded separately by monies raised by the Crossrail Art Foundation.
The Crossrail Art Foundation was founded in 2014 with support from the City of London Corporation, with a mission to promote art for the benefit of the public by establishing and maintaining a public art programme for the Elizabeth line.
The charity has funded the commissioning, creation, installation and maintenance of works of art at the central Elizabeth line stations. The aim of this project is to work closely with Crossrail to link the stations to their local area and to create inspirational spaces, contributing to the cultural vibrancy of the community served by the railway.
Under the umbrella of the Crossrail Art Foundation, each of the seven stations has its artwork funded by corporate funders and/or grant contributors.
With thanks to our funding contributors: Heathrow Airport, Selfridges & Co., Almacantar, Derwent London, Goldman Sachs, British Land, Landsec, Art Fund_, Canary Wharf Group PLC and Randeree Charitable Trust.
Together with internationally renowned London-based art galleries and a respected group of art-world representatives, the Crossrail Art Foundation and Crossrail are delivering the largest collaborative public art commissioning process in a generation.
In total, seven London-based galleries have been selected to support the Crossrail Art Programme.
The Crossrail Art Foundation is registered as a charity in England and Wales (1159310) and is a company limited by guarantee (company number 09200269), with its registered office at 50 Broadway, London SW1H 0BL.
