This year, the City of London Corporation's Outdoor Arts Programme presents A Thing of Beauty, commemorating the bicentenary of the death of the poet John Keats and celebrating beauty, which was a recurring motif in his work. The season will focus on beauty, love and truth, exploring these concepts through the lens of art, nature and relationships and addressing themes of diversity, the environment and sustainability.
