Perhaps Birmingham’s best-kept secret is that it has one of the finest collections of public art in the UK. Discover its most inspirational pieces from classic Victorian statues to modern classics, such as Antony Gormley’s Iron:Man and ‘the ‘Floozie in the Jacuzzi’, to the vibrant and edgy work of a new generation of street artists.
With over 300 high quality colour photos and a wealth of information, this is the ultimate guide to the wonderful public art to be found in today’s city.
