Wentworth Hall
Yorkshire Sculpture Park


The Yorkshire Sculpture Park  is an open-air art organisation, showing work by UK and international artists, including notably Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. The Park is situated in the grounds of an 18th century estate (Bretton Hall) which was a family home until mid 20th century when it became a College of Further and Higher Education. Various follies, landscape features and architectural structures dating from the 18th century can still be seen in the Park including a deer park and deer shelter. This has been converted by American sculptor James Turrell into an installation. Also there is  an ice house, a Camelia house. Artists working at YSP often take their inspiration from either the architectural, historical or natural environment the most being notably Andy Goldsworthy in 2007.

Since the 1990s YSP has also made use of a variety of indoor exhibition spaces, initially a Bothy Gallery - in the curved Bothy Wall- and a temporary tent-like structure called the Pavilion Gallery. YSP has added a major underground gallery space in the Bothy garden, and exhibition spaces at Longside (the hillside facing the original park). Its programme consists of contemporary and Modern sculpture (from Rodin and Bourdelle through to younger living artists). British sculpture is particularly well represented in the past exhibition programme and semi-permanent displays. Many of the British sculptors famous in the 1950s and 1960s, but later forgotten, have been the subject of solo exhibitions at YSP including Lynn Chadwick, Austin Wright, Philip King, Eduardo Paolozzi, Kenneth Armitage. Exhibitions tend to be monographic - rather than group or thematic.
