Yorkshire Sculpture Park has joined prestigious international cultural institutions, including Central Park Conservancy, Black Cultural Archives, Serpentine, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and many more, on the Bloomberg Connects app – a free app that lets you access museums, galleries, and cultural spaces around the world anytime, anywhere.
Developed in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, YSP’s new digital guide provides a fascinating way to explore the display of world class modern and contemporary sculpture in Wakefield, Yorkshire from anywhere in the world.
New content, created by YSP’s curators and exhibiting artists, brings the outdoor sculptures to life.
The Perspectives feature gives users a unique opportunity to hear from artists
Curator and content lead for YSP’s guide Sarah Coulson says:
“We are absolutely thrilled to have joined Bloomberg Connects, and in such great international company. Our guide contains everything visitors need in one place: from maps and information about food, drink and shopping, to accessibility and engaging information about the artworks. Curated walking routes are available for those wanting a little more guidance, including short and longer routes for wheelchair users and those with prams, as well as a half day or full day walks. Behind the scenes photographs of the making of some of YSP’s much-loved site-specific works, including Andy Goldsworthy’s Hanging Trees and James Turrell’s Deer Shelter Skyspace, are also featured. We hope our visitors and digital audiences enjoy using it as much as we have enjoyed creating it.”
