We’re bringing more art to Londoners with a free outdoor exhibition in the heart of Piccadilly. Discover hanging canvases, zebra crossings, and a 780-metre film, brought to you by some of the UK’s leading artists.

The Royal Academy of Arts, in partnership with Art of London, is welcoming people back to the capital by turning Piccadilly into an outdoor exhibition space.

From colourful zebra crossings, to floating artworks and weekly videos, Piccadilly comes alive with art and imagination from a range of Royal Academy artists.
