Sculpture park to mark 30 years
Stone domes
The stone domes are made from the same material as the gallery
The biggest exhibition in the history of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is being staged to mark its 30th anniversary.

As part of the show artist Andy Goldsworthy has made pieces which have connections with the park itself.

One of the pieces - 11 stone domes - is made from sandstone taken from the same Yorkshire quarry as the interior of the park's gallery.

The anniversary comes nearly a year after the park's future was secured.

Wakefield Council bought the Bretton Hall estate, which houses the park, after its previous owner the University of Leeds announced it would be leaving the site in 2007.

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park was founded in 1977 and over the years has received many accolades as one of the best sites in the world to see contemporary sculpture in a landscape setting.

The exhibition, which opens on 31 March, will also include work by Liverpool-based artist Leo Fitzmaurice who uses advertising materials in his pieces.
