My day out at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park: The KAWS outdoor exhibition & more…

Yorkshire Sculpture Park 2016

A little trip out recently saw me heading to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to check out their latest exhibitions. I forget that this little gem is only 20 minutes away from where I live.

Now I am no art critic. I will be honest, I often don’t ‘get’ art, particularly if it’s modern art. Despite these flaws I do know what I like when I look at it. Sculpture is one of my favourite art forms. When I lives in Paris I spent many an afternoon just sitting in the Sculpture Gallery of the Louvre, now that I live in Yorkshire (UK), I am so lucky to have a park full of my favourite artistic medium sitting right on my doorstep. I hope that you enjoy a few pics from my day! 🙂

The KAWS outdoor exhibition: This was one of the main reasons I went. To see these massive cartoon-esque sculptures among the trees was spectacular. This exhibition is on until 12th June and there is an indoor gallery also (not pictured here).

Unfortunately I can’t attribute any of the sculptures to their creators other than those by KAWS…I took so many photos and did not get any of the other artists’ names. I will rectify this next time I go as many of the other sculptures are long-term exhibits.

I hope you enjoyed this as it is slightly different to my normal posts. I definitely enjoyed taking and editing the photos!

  1. What a neat place!
    I studied abroad in London back in 2005 and made a weekend trip to Paris, and the Louvre (and d’Orsay & all the museums in the UK I saw) were a huge highlight of my trip. Never made it to a sculpture garden, though.
    I’m kind of the same way. I love art and find sculpture fascinating, but there’s a lot of art I just don’t “get.”

    • What a brilliant experience! London has definitely gotnablot to offer. 😊 I love the Louvre…in fact all museums and art galleries. The sculpture park is something else. The KAWS sculptures standing among the trees in particular are amazing…I want one for my garden! Lol! Thank you for stopping by. 😊
