To celebrate the 25th anniversary of ChildLine, BT is launching the BT ArtBox project - a vast, open-air art exhibition set to take over the Capital's streets this summer (18 June - 16 July).
Taking inspiration from the Gilbert Scott-designed original K6 kiosk, BT has engaged over 80 leading talents to re-style that much-loved icon of British design, the red telephone box, in their own creative way.
Each BT ArtBox artist has transformed a full-size, fibre-glass replica of the original telephone kiosk, introduced in 1936 to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of the coronation of King George V.
From dawn until dusk on 15 June, a selection of BT ArtBoxes will be on public display at Trafalgar Square, after which they will be moved to landmark locations around the capital, including Broadgate.
The creative talents involved at Broadgate are Stephen Cox, who also has a permanent piece located at Broadgate for over 20 years - the Exchange Square Water Feature
; jewellery designer, Kyle Hopkins and Manchester School of Art Professor, David Crow.
Covering a wide range of creative disciplines, the BT ArtBox artists have produced an eclectic collection of artwork for us to explore; interact with the TweetBox via twitter, scope out the Children's Bookshop with hand-painted novels, learn about the Indian folk art which inspired Rangoli's K6 and reflect upon the serious issues of childhood loneliness and neglect with ChildLine's own ArtBox and Peekaboo by Cosmo Sarson.
On 18 July, selected BT ArtBoxes will be auctioned off at a VIP Gala Auction hosted by Sotheby's at the National Portrait Gallery. All other BT ArtBoxes will be available to buy online via an e-bay auction open to the general public.
