Here’s my Jaygo taken on ‘The Walk of Art’ On the 16th of November 2003 and again last Sunday. We were in the area so decided to visit the 500 acre art park near Sheffield for a second time. A lot has changed there and in the rest of the world. We’ve now got a Sophie and a dog and have traded our 2 year old and 5 for an 11 year old and a 13 year old and the world has got a facebook.
Fantastic spot for all ages though – tried and tested. Sifting back through a bunch of photos just now, some of them were when the boys found a bunch of bricks and started making their own sculpture. Inspiring stuff. This time one of the bits that made me smile – made me see a place through my child’s eye was when Felix (with his technical, science head on) was stopped in his tracks by a piece by Masayuki Koorida called Growth. Perhaps it was the 50s spaceship like form of said piece that made him look deeper but his speculation over what is was made from and how it was made was brilliant to observe.
If you’re in South Yorkshire, nay the North of England this place is MUST visit. World class art and it’s (apart from the £7.50 for the day car park) Free.
