Why Leisure Land Golf at York Art Gallery?
York is not traditionally associated with contemporary art which is why it is so important for us to bring these cutting edge contemporary works to our Artists Garden. This playable installation will give people the opportunity to experience new and challenging art in a peaceful green space in the centre of the city.
While the playable crazy golf course offers a fun activity, the innovative design, sculptural skill and meaningful messages behind each piece also make it a truly innovative work of contemporary art. This will be a rare opportunity to see the work of seven internationally renowned contemporary artists within one installation, and each golf hole deals with a different sociopolitical issue in an accessible and interactive way.
There isn't long left to support our project, so if you are able to donate, don't forget that an Art Fund private donor will match your donation pound for pound.
