Playing a vital role in Birmingham’s cultural landscape for almost 50 years, Ikon is a registered charity and internationally renowned contemporary art gallery, presenting a wide ranging artistic programme through exhibitions, off-site projects and extensive education and outreach work.

A Real Birmingham Family Appeal

We need your help to raise £100,000 to fund a brand new life-size sculpture of A Real Birmingham Family to be located in front of the new Library of Birmingham. We intend to unveil this in 2014 but we can only do this with your support.

A Real Birmingham Family is Ikon’s ongoing project with Birmingham-born, Turner Prize winning artist Gillian Wearing, and is a quest to find, and immortalise in bronze, a ‘real’ Birmingham family.

Donate now and help Ikon honour A Real Birmingham Family with new artwork for the city.

All donations welcome

Everyone who donates £250 or more will automatically join the Friends of the Family, a published list of subscribers.

All Donations Doubled

For a limited period of time all individual donations to Ikon will be matched by Arts Council England, meaning that your donation will be doubled.

Charity No: 528892
