Help save Henry Moore's Old Flo
Act now to help keep Henry Moore's iconic sculpture Draped Seated Woman on public display and prevent it being sold by Tower Hamlets Council
You will no doubt be aware that Tower Hamlets Council plans to press ahead with the sale of Henry Moore's Draped Seated Woman to raise money towards its budget deficit. From artists to members of the local community, there has been strong opposition to this decision. We need your support to ensure this important work of art remains where Henry Moore wanted it to, on public view.
The Museum of London has proposed that its London Docklands site display the sculpture, which not only concurs with the spirit in which the artist originally made the sale but also preserves it as a part of the capital's cultural heritage. Join us in helping this great sculpture find a fitting new home.
How you can help
There are three small but essential actions you can take to help raise awareness and demonstrate the mass public affection there clearly is for the sculpture:
1. Email the Mayor, Lutfur Rahman, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just add your name at the end of our suggested text and copy us in at email@example.com.
2. Sign the petition. http://www.change.org/petitions/lutfur-rahman-independent-mayor-of-tower-hamlets-keep-old-flo-in-tower-hamletshttp://www.change.org/petitions/lutfur-rahman-independent-mayor-of-tower-hamlets-keep-old-flo-in-tower-hamlets
Over 2,000 local residents including artist Rachel Whiteread have signed a petition against the sale, but we need more people to make their views heard.
