Last weekend we visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I’ve mentioned it before on this blog because I am a bit of a fan. I’m mentioning it again
because I harp on about things I like because it has temporary exhibition until January 2012 and if you live within distance it really is worth visiting. Summer is the perfect time to visit because it is what it says on the tin a park. We had a fabulous Sunday exploring the extensive parklands and the current exhibition; Jaume Plensa. Plensa is a Spanish artist, I can’t say meaningful things about art, but what I can say is that I found his work beautiful and arresting. My son loved the curtain of words, that he could make tinkle and the room of gongs which he could bong. He loved walking inside some of the pieces.
The thing a love about YSP is that it bridges the gap between great for children and great for adults; perfect for both.
The Yorkshire Sculpture Park has a new cafe at the Kennel Block it’s more informal and has a cheaper menu than the main restaurant and tables outside. There is lots of space to picnic if you bring your own food, but their food is definitely worth sampling.
