The art exhibition entitled “Images of St Paul’s in the 21st Century” will be officially opened by the Right Honourable Nick Anstee, Lord Mayor of London, on 20 September 2010 in the Crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral. Visitors will then be able to view the exhibition from 21st September to 15th October 2010. In the first exhibition of its kind at St Paul’s, 64 artists have produced original works especially for the exhibition to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the completion of Wren's great enterprise.

There will be a broad and eclectic range of interpretations of St Paul’s place in the life and rapidly changing topography of London. All of the pictures will be for sale, with the project’s entire charitable proceeds going to the St Paul’s Cathedral Foundation, which supports the maintenance and mission of St Paul’s.

The Patron of the exhibition is the Right Reverend Graeme Knowles, Dean of St Paul’s.
