About the Tower Bridge Road Art Commission

Southwark Council has partnered with the Tower Bridge Road Alliance and the artist Helen Marshall of The People’s Picture to create a new iconic artwork on Tower Bridge Road.

The work is being funded under the council’s High Street Challenge initiative to help promote the area and local businesses. The giant photo mural will respond to and communicate the site’s history to give the residents, local people and visitors a unique artistic experience.

Helen Marshall, Lead Artist and her team will work collaboratively with the local community and Tower Bridge Road Alliance to include as many people as possible during a whistle-stop tour of the area. She will also work with local archives to source images for inclusion. It is estimated the artwork will contain approximately 3,500 photographs and images reminiscent of the past, yet pointing to the future.
