About Sculpture Adoption Scheme

Sculpture Placement Group have worked with artists to identify sculptural works in long-term storage with no current future that they are happy to offer for adoption by communities and organisations.

Sculpture Adoption Scheme brings sculptural joy into people’s daily lives and tests a new model for circulating artworks, increasing access to art ownership and alleviating artists of the pressures of storage and space.

Laura Aldridge

Laura Aldridge (born Frimley, 1978) lives and works in Glasgow. She studied Fine Art at Wimbledon College of Art and graduated from Glasgow School of Art’s Master of Fine Art programme in 2006. Recent solo exhibitions include Passerelle Centre d’Arte Contemporain, Brest, and Tramway, Glasgow (both 2015). In 2016 she presented a solo project ‘Go Woman Go! with the British Council as part of its Nigeria season. The sculpture was inspired by the work of the women ceramicists in Giri, Abuja where Laura worked at the Nike Centre for Art and Culture.
