Yorkshire Sculpture Park exhibits oversize sculptures

Date Posted: 18/04/2014

School trip organisers arranging a trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park in Wakefield can now experience its first large-scale sculpture exhibition, by American artist Ursula von Rydingsvard.

The exhibition, reportedly the artist’s most extensive to date, illustrates the full scope of von Rydingsvard’s diverse practice, with more than 40 works of drawing and sculpture made over the last two decades, presented in YSP’s purpose-built Underground Gallery and in the open air.

One of America’s most inventive artists, von Rydingsvard has evolved a distinctive style using cedar wood beams.

Admission to the park and galleries is free and when pre-booking a school trip you will benefit from a free introductory talk to the exhibition in the Underground Gallery.
