One of the highlights of 2012 has been visiting Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We stayed with a friend in Wakefield and drove over one sunny Saturday afternoon. It is an open air gallery with wonderful sculptures dotted about a scenic 500 acres of countryside.
It’s a great way to introduce kids to art and sculpture as they can be as wild and crazy as they want around the artwork, unlike in many galleries where there are large signs saying ‘Do Not Touch’. Plus it combines art with exercise and fresh air.
There is also an onsite cafe, shop selling some quirky knick knacks and an indoor gallery which was showing an extensive Miro exhibition when we visited. Dead cool and definitely worth a visit, shame my camera battery died half way around.
Do you have anywhere like this where you live?
