Hove Plinth Campaign
Bringing new sculpture to Hove seafront.
Hove Plinth will create a brand new cultural attraction on the historic Hove seafront - a new sculpture plinth to showcase the best in modern day sculpture; attracting, inspiring and engaging local people and visitors with art and adding to Brighton & Hove’s cultural offerings and the city’s prosperity.
Inspired by the Fourth Plinth in London, Hove Plinth will exhibit a changing programme of sculpture. Major works will be displayed for 12 – 18 months after which some will be moved to permanent sites, creating a lasting legacy of public art in the city.

Big step forward for Hove Plinth
Thank you to all supporters!
The Hove Plinth crowdfunding campaign has now closed.
We are exhausted but happy, and delighted that we are now able to add over £12 000 to the £65 000 previously raised and earmarked for creating the plinth and a fantastic site for public art on the Hove seafront.
More than 100 people pledged donations and we have made many contacts with organisations and individuals who want to join us in bringing new public art to the city.
We are now in a good place to close the remaining gap in resources and to move ahead on securing sponsorship for sculptures. We will be back to resume the ongoing fundraising effort after taking a summer break.
We can't thank enough all those who donated and the many organisations and individuals who raised the profile of the campaign through brilliant publicity.
