The Hepworth Wakefield Garden
The Hepworth Wakefield Garden is designed by Tom Stuart-Smith and is inspired by its unusual setting between a 19th-century red-brick textile mill and the 21st-century art gallery, edged by the River Calder. The garden echos the striking, angular shapes of the David Chipperfield-designed gallery, while harnessing a naturalism that reflects Barbara Hepworth’s deep connection to the Yorkshire landscape. Free for all to enjoy, the garden hosts an exciting programme of outdoor sculpture, special events and commissions and has seating and step-free paths to encourage the widest possible audience to use and move through the space. The Hepworth Wakefield art gallery is open daily and free to enter. Inside you can explore the life and career of Barbara Hepworth, one of the most important artists of the 20th-century, together with Wakefield's impressive art collection and regularly changing exhibitions of the best modern and contemporary art from around the world. There is a cafe and shop.
