More Information

To celebrate the Park's 40th anniversary, we are delighted to invite internationally acclaimed artist Jaume Plensa to return to YSP to talk about his recent work and influences. 

Plensa first exhibited at YSP as part of Artranspennine in 1998, showing his bronze sculpture Personal Miraculous Fountain (1993–4) in the Camellia House. He returned to stage one of YSP’s most successful shows in 2011, which was also his first significant UK exhibition

In celebration of this important year, YSP now welcomes a beautiful new seven-metre-high cast iron sculpture Wilsis (2016), overlooking the historic lakes at YSP.

Don't miss this exciting chance to hear one of the most respected and renowned sculptors working today.
