Family visit to Yorkshire Park Part 2 – outside

Back at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park we saw Arabella enjoying the huge muddy puddles created by the storm that battered the site as we enjoyed the inside gallery spaces. We meanwhile enjoyed a few outdoor pieces alongside the puddles while we watched her antics. We are so pleased with how Arabella has inherited our love of puddles!

      

The following photos are a selection of those taken around the sculpture park.

 

We always enjoy spending time in any James Turrell’s sky spaces and this one called “Deer Shelter” was the first we ever found.

   

Or final stop was in the chapel gallery with a single installation filling the main room. Sheets and music hang among white string “nests”. All of this rises from a piano. This space had a magical atmosphere.

   

So that was the end of our family holiday in Scotland and a few extra days in Yorkshire.
