New York and Wakefield will have even more in common when a world-famous artist creates a new sculpture for Wakefield city centre this June.
As part of Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019, and backed by Wakefield BID, Huma Bhabha will create a new sculpture to go on display from June 22 to September 29 in the city centre. The exact location is yet to be revealed, so sit tight.
Last year, the artist installed her "We Come in Peace" sculpture on the roof of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, overlooking the famous Manhattan skyline. See pic.
It's all part of Yorkshire Sculpture International, the biggest sculpture event in the UK in 2019, bringing together one exhibition across The Hepworth Wakefield, The Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, plus new outdoor commissions in Wakefield city centre and Leeds city centre.
