Free art for Tube line birthday

Artwork by Richard Long
Richard Long is being exhibited at the Tate this month

Sixty thousand free prints are being given out to Tube passengers to help celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Jubilee Line.

The free prints will be handed out between 0700 and 1200 BST at 10 stations on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The prints are based on a walk in the Scottish Cairngorms.

Sally Shaw, Curator of Art on the Underground, said: "This beautiful work by Richard Long is a window into an entirely different landscape."

Long's artwork is called One Thing Leads to Another - Everything is Connected, and was commissioned by Art on the Underground and Tate Britain.

The artwork is the first of a series of contemporary artworks celebrating 30 years of the opening of the Jubilee Line.

It also coincides with the opening of Heaven and Earth at Tate Britain, a major exhibition of Long's work.

The stations where the prints will be handed out are: Stanmore, Wembley Park, Finchley Road, Baker Street, Green Park, Westminster, London Bridge, Canada Water, Canary Wharf and Stratford.
