Yorkshire Sculpture Park

As you know I’m not much of an art buff but its been Half Term here last week so I took a day off so we could have a day out. The Yorkshire Sculpture park is one of those places that’s on your door step but you never get round to visiting so off we finally went.

The park is is an open-air gallery¬† showing work by British and international artists, including Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. The park’s collection of works by Moore is one of the largest open-air displays of his bronzes in Europe.

There is plenty of works to see but the majority are piles of bricks or collections of metal along side pretentious descriptions of what the artist believes they represent. Personally I don’t get it but if that’s what you like then its fine by me. There were a couple we liked but the majority left me scratching my head.
