Sculpture parks create fantastic opportunities to enjoy art and get out into a green space. A stroll through a sculpture park in summer is idyllic but fortunately, it’s not limited to one season and can often really be enjoyed all year round.
London – Frieze Sculpture
Traditionally, the sculpture park accompanying Frieze has always only been open during the week of the fair. It has always seemed such a pity that the time was so limited but now that Frieze is collaborating with various big galleries, all visitors to Regent’s Park can visit. Frieze Sculpture is open for four months. If you are in London and love pieces like Corten metal sculpture, you should not miss out on a visit to Frieze Sculpture.
West Sussex – Cass Sculpture Foundation
With all pieces for sale, the non-profit Cast Sculpture Foundation has been displaying sculpture in its beautiful green surroundings for 25 years. With outstanding artists showing their work, the public has the opportunity to also buy pieces, as all that is on display is also for sale. The ever changing collection can be visited at any time of the year at the Goodwood Estate. The collection comprises of around 80 works of art. Sculpture parks are an ideal way for people of all ages to get some fresh air and much needed active time through walking. If you are just starting out, try following some guidelines.
Wiltshire – New Art Centre
A variety of sculpture, ranging from 20th-century pieces up to modern day works, is displayed throughout this typically English sculpture park. It is set in the gardens and surrounding grounds of an early 18th-century Wiltshire country house called Roche Court. Sculptures displayed in the grounds and in the exhibition spaces are for sale. If Corten metal sculpture or any other outdoor sculpture is your cup of tea, this space is well worth a visit.
