In a joint venture Vivacity Culture and Leisure and Peterborough City Council purchased ‘Louis Smith’ by Ben Dearnley which is now a part of the Peterborough Sculpture Trust.
‘Louis Smith’ by Ben Dearnley, a torso in bronze, celebrates the role Louis has played in inspiring young people to strive for sporting recognition and success since the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics. The work was originally made for an exhibition by Ben Dearnley entitled ‘Avenue of Champions’ which documented in sculpture modern sporting icons.
