The 2014 Serco Prize for Illustration: London StoriesLondon Stories, an exhibition featuring the best of the entries for The 2014 Serco Prize for Illustration, opens on 14 February 2014 at the London Transport Museum and will feature 50 works of art. Entrants were asked to create an illustration that visually captures a well-known or lesser known London narrative in a single image; stories that are contemporary or historical, real or imagined. They were asked to create something that is colourful, inspiring and celebrates a vibrant, multi-layered London. Stories could be those seen in a film or play, heard in poetry or music, read in literature or an urban myth. All of the illustrations are accompanied by a short text by the artists summarising the inspiration behind their creation.

 

About London Transport Museum

After a two-year, £22 million refurbishment the London Transport Museum reopened on 22 November 2007 revealing more exhibition space than before. The museum travels back through the 200-year history of public transport, arranged according to several themes: London Transport's famous design heritage, the poster collection, public transport during both World Wars and plans for the capital's development in the twenty-first century.
