Lynn Chadwick’s Dancing Figures, 1956 joins works by Barbara Hepworth, Sir Michael Craig Martin and Rebecca Warren in the opening display of sculpture installed in The Hepworth Wakefield’s new garden. Designed by award-winning garden designer Tom Stuart-Smith the garden has transformed 4,000 square metres of land next to the gallery, making it one of the UK’s largest free public gardens.

Simon Wallis, Director of The Hepworth Wakefield, said: ‘It was important to us that the new garden presented both modern and contemporary sculpture to act as an introduction to what first time visitors will find inside the gallery. We are delighted to be able to bring to Wakefield artworks by such well-known artists for people to enjoy in our new outdoor setting.’

The first phase of the garden will opened to the public on 9 August and the full site completed by spring 2020.
