Celebrating Tower Bridge - a temporary exhibition
Visit Tower Bridge From 12 April to discover a new exhibition showcasing the artwork of Year 9 GCSE students from City of London Academy, Southwark, created in celebration of Tower Bridge’s 125th birthday this year.
Working with artist Natalie Ryde, the students developed screen prints responding to the theme of ‘structures’.
The works artfully highlight Tower Bridge’s delicate neo-Gothic decoration and elegant structural steelwork, contrasting with its bold, iconic silhouette.
This is the third year of partnership between Tower Bridge and City of London Academy, Southwark. Look out for the beautiful bronze plaques which mark the route to the Victorian Engine Rooms, which were also created by students of the school.
Natalie Ryde is a visual artist, working predominantly in drawing and print. She also develops art projects in museums, heritage sites, schools and arts organisations.
The exhibition is free with admission and on display in the High-level Walkways until mid-June.
