Miro & Hearld at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP)

Miro Exhibition at YSP
You've just got time to visit the Miro Exhibition before it finishes at YSP on 6 January 2013.  This is the first major UK exhibition of his sculpture most of which was done in the second half of his life and includes some very colourful pieces. Some of the Miro is outdoors and some is in the Underground Gallery but all are just by the YSP Centre, cafe and shop.  

Autumn Fox - Mark Hearld - 2012
... but you can relax a little if you want to see the Mark Hearld: Birds & Beasts because that's on until 17 February 2013. All of Mark Hearld's work is in the YSP Centre - ground floor and upstairs.  Mark is a York based artists who has taken inspiration from the YSP estate (including its wildlife) to create some new work for this exhibition.  There are handpainted wooden birds, ceramic hares, collages, lino & litho prints. Go see - it's well worth the trip.

If you've never been to the YSP it makes a great day out - there's the usual essentials - car parking (£7.50 per day but entry into YSP is free), cafe and shop (particularly good) and then there are indoor exhibtions and all the outdoor sculptures - you can do as much or as little walking as you like (there's 500 acres!).  If you have small children they can run around while you take in the artworks. Fresh air, exercise, culture, food & shopping -  surely something for everyone!
