The Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the parkland of Bretton Hall in West Bretton, Wakefield, in West Yorkshire, England. It’s an open-air gallery showing work by UK and international artists, including Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. It was the UK’s first sculpture park based on the temporary open air exhibitions organised in London parks from the 1940s to 1970s by the Arts Council and London County Council (and later Greater London Council). The ‘gallery without walls’ has a changing exhibition programme, rather than permanent display as seen in other UK sculpture parks such as Grizedale Forest.
