The Power of Public Art


Today is a day of reflection, and we were particularly moved by the evolving art installation at the Tower of London which was just completed, marking the 100-year anniversary of World War I. Created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies spill over gray stone walls and fill the Tower’s famous moat in swaths of red –  each bloom representing a life lost. It is both striking and horrifying. A beautiful, touching statement of peace and remembrance and a testament to the power of public art.
