The Hepworth Wakefield is Yorkshire’s landmark gallery for the visual arts. Opening on 21 May 2011 this stunning building, designed by the award-winning David Chipperfield Architects, will be a place to explore art, architecture and your imagination.
With over 1,600 square metres of light-filled gallery spaces, The Hepworth Wakefield will be the largest purpose-built exhibition space outside London. The gallery will bring together work from Wakefield’s art collection, exhibitions by contemporary artists and rarely seen works by Barbara Hepworth, one of the 20th Century’s most important artists who was born and grew up in Wakefield.
Located in an outstanding setting on Wakefield’s historic waterfront, the gallery will be a vibrant social space with a café, shop, learning studios and unique conference venue, as well as an exciting events programme of workshops, family activities, talks and tours.
