There are plans to add to East London's sculpture trail, The Line.

But which artwork should join the sculpture walk is up to you. Artist Michael Craig-Martin is offering three options up for a public vote.

Choose between Craig-Martin's Hammer (2011), Pitchfork (2013) or Wheelbarrow (2013). The winning piece will be added to The Square, an exciting new project on The Line, transforming a flat, empty concrete slab on the banks of the River Lee in Bow.

Michael Craig-Martin's work will join pieces from artists including Antony Gormley and Damien Hirst on The Line, the sculpture walk that links Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with The O2 along East London's waterways.

The Square will mark an interesting new addition to The Line; a new focal point on the River Lee, it will open at the same time as the Twelvetrees Ramp, and connect two of The Line's most popular points: Three Mills and Cody Dock.

Vote for your favourite artwork before 12 June at www.theartstack.com/tag/TheSquare.
