Public art and sculpture

Outdoor art and sculpture

One of the wonderful thing about sculptures and statues is they can be viewed in truly glorious surroundings. Grand houses, manicured parks and picturesque trails form the backdrops to an array of sculpture gardens and collections. Marvel at the sheer variety of mediums in which sculptures come, including brass, bronze, ceramic, lead, metal, plaster, wood and wire. Simply drive along the A1 to see Antony Gormley’s haunting steel sculpture the Angel of the North. Just as accessible is the public art bountifully placed to brighten our municipal spaces.
