From the very outset, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has included artworks as part of its architecture and landscape; instilling a sense of local pride and cultural ambition through the inclusion and creation of world-class art.
The 28 artworks have been made to be experienced in the landscape, both up close and from afar. Some are large and striking while others are smaller and harder to find, but they are all inspired by the many histories of the area and reflect the Park’s identity as a place for people from around the world and from around the corner.

Arts and culture has continued to be an important part of the Park’s story with a rich programme of events, festivals, and commissions working with the local creative community and world class artists, ensuring that an inspiring cultural legacy continues as the Park evolves.
In coming years our cultural legacy will be delivered through the creation of East Bank - a new powerhouse for innovation, creativity and learning on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. East Bank is a unique collaboration between world-leading universities, arts and culture institution that opens up opportunities for everyone who visits, lives and works in east London.
Examples of past and present arts and cultural activity on and around the Park are below.
