Sculptural encounters in Leeds: walking tour

Leeds City Centre

Discover the sculptural heartbeat of Leeds, from the energetic Legs Walking by Kenneth Armitage to Quentin Bell’s eye-catching “The Dreamer”.

This extended walking tour revealed the hidden histories of Leeds, beginning with the once forgotten Central Court at Leeds Art Gallery, brought to life by artist Ayşe Erkmen for her new commission, to Joseph Beuys’ 7000 Oaks tree which is often overlooked in the city centre.

The tour will encompassed a wide range of sculpture located at the University of Leeds campus, including recently installed works, before ending at The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery.

This event is part of the Sculpture in the Round Conversations series organised by University of Leeds and Yorkshire Sculpture International.
