Michael Sandle named President of The Public Statues and Sculpture Association (PSSA)
The Public Statues and Sculpture Association (PSSA) encourages engagement with the many thousands of sculptures in the public domain across the UK, which represent an important part of our shared cultural heritage.
The PSSA is the natural successor to the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association (PMSA), which ran successfully for nearly 30 years. Founded on similar principles, the PSSA will advance the understanding and appreciation of sculpture.
The Association champions the historical, artistic and social context of public statues and sculpture. It is committed to completing and publishing the county by county survey of UK Public Sculpture established by the PMSA. It will record the location and condition of public sculpture, which is vital today and for future generations. The PSSA will also promote education about sculpture, publishing articles, academic papers and specialist books.
