Works of art by internationally significant artists can be seen freely and accessibly in Greater Manchester, without even having to step foot inside an art gallery or museum. Visiting key works by artists including the British sculptors Elisabeth Frink and Gertrude Hermes, and the conceptual artists Gustav Metzger and Ryan Gander, this chapter explores the history of public art commissioning in Greater Manchester. It discusses a variety of aims of placing artworks in public places – from public parks to Manchester Airport – showing how these range from decoration and celebration, to interaction and participation, to placemaking and tourism.
