Manchester Art Gallery

Public art

It’s very easy to walk past many of Manchester’s public monuments without ever spending time thinking about who or what they’re about and why they’re there. This guide was produced as part of a citywide project to research and document all of Manchester’s public art. Find out more about the city’s rich history and lively present through the monuments on our streets and in our squares and parks.
