Public Statues and Sculpture Association

The Public Statues and Sculpture Association


President: His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester KC GCVO

Patron: Michael Sandle RA

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 also promotes education about sculpture, publishing articles, academic papers and specialist books.

The PSSA will encourage the commissioning and installation of new public sculpture.

Our dynamic social media is building a strong network of students, which will be complemented by a sculpture residency.

We host lively talks, conferences, workshops and webinars providing an open forum for informal discussion and academic debate, with a focus on inclusivity and diversity.

Please help the PSSA achieve these objectives by becoming a member.
