Statement are incredibly proud to have become corporate supporters of The Hepworth, Wakefield.
The iconic art gallery, described by The Independent as ‘one of the finest contemporary art museums in Europe’, is the largest purpose-built exhibition space in the country outside of London Recently celebrating its one millionth visitor, The Hepworth brings together work from Wakefield’s art collection exhibitions by contemporary artists with pieces created by historic Wakefield-born artists, such as the sculptor Barbara Hepworth, whose works were rarely seen until the gallery was launched in May 2011. In addition to 1,600 square metres of airy, light-filled gallery space, The Hepworth also comprises a café, shop, conference venue and learning studios, offering a unique experience to visitors of all ages.
To date, the Hepworth has brought almost £16,000,000 into the Wakefield economy, which demonstrates the importance and value of investing in culture and the arts, even in these times of austerity. Statement are proud to be corporate sponsors of The Hepworth and look forward to supporting their projects and events in the future.
