Later this week sees the return of Mayfair Art Weekend for 2023! Mayfair Art Weekend is an annual festivity that champions the exceptional galleries residing in the world’s internationally renowned gallery district. This year also celebrates the weekends 10th anniversary of activity which is bolstered with new partnerships with Art of London, The Royal Academy of Arts, The National Gallery and The National Portrait Gallery.

New partner, Art of London, will also be presenting Art After Dark as part of this year's programme of events - two nights of free art and culture, bringing together both commercial galleries and the West End’s art institutions, in addition to a public art installation at Piccadilly Circus on the 29th - 30th June 2023.

This installation, in partnership with Westminster City Council, will see artist Amelia Kosminsky and world-renowned florist Philip Corps transform Piccadilly Circus into a green oasis, with flowers and lighting decorating the Anteros statue at night, accompanied by calming video content on the Piccadilly Lights to offer a moment of tranquillity in the heart of London.

If that wasn't enough, Mayfair Art Weekend is offering  a full programme of family friendly events, talks and trails to follow as well as a range of exhibitions, all intended to showcase the art and culture that Mayfair has to offer.
