Vote to decide which new artwork should join London's sculpture trail 'The Line'

Isabelle Aron

Last year, London got a little more cultural thanks to the arrival of a new sculpture trail, 'The Line'. Covering a three-mile stretch between the O2 and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the trail showcases sculptures from Damien Hirst, Martin Creed and Eduardo Paolozzi, among others. It's been open for just over a year, and now the folks behind the project want to add a new sculpture on the banks of the River Lee in Bow.

They've teamed up with artist Michael Craig-Martin, who's agreed to loan a sculpture to brighten up an empty space next to the river – and they're asking the public to vote between three of his sculptures to go on display. Currently, this jazzy blue hammer (below) is in the lead, but if you've got your eye on one of the other contenders, you've got until June 12 to have your say.

Vote here.
