Welcome

The Public Arts Trust is a charity set up to deal with the matter of the condition of existing public art in Milton Keynes, in particular the sculptures. As the MK Council knows, this is a large and potentially costly task, involving inventories, condition reports, conservation plans, sourcing of funds etc. We appreciate the need to win support from various bodies, both public and private, and to establish good working partnerships for the years ahead. We have strong support from the PMSA and the Royal Academy of Arts.
