Yorkshire Sculpture Park have invited Common Ground to West Bretton in the spring of 2018.
Alongside newly commissioned works, educational programmes and artist interventions at the venue, the Common Ground art collection – some thirty years in the making – will also be exhibited and include the works of Andy Goldsworthy, John Hubbard, David Nash, Posy Simmonds, Ellie Davies, Peter Randall-Page, Clifford Harper and James Ravilious.
Popular Common Ground campaigns like Apple Day, Parish Maps, Trees Woods and the Green Man, Community Orchards and Local Distinctiveness have captured the public imagination over the last 30 years, influencing not only policy-makers but inspiring community activism at the grass roots. The exhibition will explore the role that artists have in enabling community action and helping us all express our relationship with the landscape.
