The Hepworth Wakefield opened in 2011 and is Yorkshire's landmark gallery for the visual arts. This stunning building, designed by David Chipperfield Architects, is located in the outstanding setting of Wakefield's historic waterfront.

The gallery celebrates the area’s artistic legacy as the birthplace of Barbara Hepworth, one of the 20th Century's most important artists, and brings together work from Wakefield's art collection and internationally renowned artists, as well as a significant collection of Hepworth's work
