Every year the Mayor of London invites London’s primary and secondary schoolchildren to create artworks inspired by the commissions for the Fourth Plinth.
The Fourth Plinth is UK’s most talked about contemporary sculpture prize. It invites world class artists to create new works for display in Trafalgar Square. The image above is the most recent sculpture ‘The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist’ by Michael Rakowitz and is made with recycled packaging. This is Yinka Shonibare’s ‘Nelson’s Ship In A Bottle’ from 2010:
I am very happy to announce that Daniel in Maple Class (Year 1) is a winner of the Fourth Plinth Schools Award this year. Daniel’s winning entry will be part of an art exhibition at City Hall later this year and he has also won a prize from Cass Art. Well done Daniel!
