This time last week, we were celebrating the success of our Art Happens campaign to raise £10,000 to bring Leisure Land Golf to York this summer.
We can confirm that thanks to the generosity of our 89 funders and private donor match-funding contributions, we have raised £10,174 - 101% of our target! Thank you once again to everyone who donated.
So what's next?
For donors who selected a reward, we estimate that these will be dispatched in early June, in line with Leisure Land Golf’s arrival at York Art Gallery. Watch this space for more details.
The gallery team is currently working with Doug Fishbone and New Art Exchange to bring the seven Leisure Land Golf holes to our Artists Garden. The installation will open on 2 June 2017, with visitors welcome to just take a look or play a round of golf for a small fee every day to 3 September 2017.
Our free Artists Garden is at the back of our gallery, accessible through the York Museum Gardens or via our beautiful balcony (which will offer a fantastic view of the course!)
