Hepworth Wakefield Opens

May 21st, 2011 | By

Today, in Wakefield, a new tourist attraction opens. It’s called a gallery for the visual arts but to most of us it will probably be thought of as a sculpture gallery since it will house works by some of the most well-known and influential modern sculptors. Named after locally born and bred sculptor, Barbara Hepworth it will contain 44 of her own works in addition to works by another local, Henry Moore and Jacob Epstein. But there isn’t only sculpture. Contemporary art is also on display from the Wakefield Collection.
