Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) is the leading international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture. It is an independent charitable trust and registered museum situated in the 500-acre, 18th-century Bretton Hall estate in West Yorkshire.

Founded in 1977 by Executive Director Peter Murray, YSP was the first
sculpture park in the UK, and is the largest of its kind in Europe, providing the only place in the world to see Barbara Hepworthís The Family of Man in its entirety alongside a significant collection of sculpture, including bronzes by Henry Moore, and site-specific works by Andy Goldsworthy, David Nash and James Turrell.

YSP also mounts a world-class, year-round temporary exhibitions programme including some of the worldís leading artists across five indoor galleries and the open air. Recent highlights include exhibitions by KAWS, Bill Viola, Anthony Caro, Fiona Banner, Ai Weiwei, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Joan MirÛ and Jaume Plensa.

YSPís core work is made possible by investment from Arts Council England, Wakefield Council, Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation and Sakurako and William Fisher through the Sakana Foundation.

YSP was named Art Fund Museum of the Year in 2014.
