This morning, artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper officially unveiled Poppies: Weeping Window at IWM London. This is the final location for the sculpture on the UK wide Poppies Tour which has been seen by over 4 million people.
IWM London tells the stories of those whose lives have been shaped by war through the depth, breadth and impact of their Galleries, displays and events. Weeping Window spectacularly cascades down the front of their iconic building.
Poppies: Weeping Window will be displayed at IWM London from 5 October before the sculptures become part of the Imperial War Museums’ collection along with Poppies: Wave, currently on display at IWM North.
Visitors to IWM London can also see Poppies: Reflections, an exhibition designed by Tom Piper of photographs by Ellie Kurttz and Gideon Mendel, charting the four-year poppies tour.
