When you’re lucky, you’ll come across a statue that stops you in your tracks. Art UK, a charity with an ambition to host all of the nation’s public art in one online home, has brought 13,500 sculptures to the web for the first time so that you can take in these works from your own abode.

The Art UK portal encompasses sculptures seen not only in cities but also rural areas, making public art far more accessible to, well, the public. It’s thanks to the effort of 500 photographers and data volunteers, and the collections of 3,400 British institutions, that the nonprofit has managed to accelerate the online preservation of these works.

Sculptures include work by Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Henry Moore, and Barbara Hepworth, among thousands of others. Through this massive, five-year initiative, the charity hopes to paint the richness of British art history for the masses.
