Since opening in 2009, Jupiter Artland has quickly established itself as an exciting new addition to the UK art scene, offering visitors a unique opportunity to explore one of Britain’s pre-eminent collections of contemporary sculpture in a constantly-evolving environment.
The following year Jupiter Artland unveiled four new major site specific commissions. Works by Turner Prize short-listed artists Cornelia Parker, Nathan Coley and Jim Lambie as well as young British sculptor, Peter Liversidge, are now displayed in the 80-acre woodland grounds of Bonnington House.
Works on permanent display include iconic pieces by leading international sculptors including Anish Kapoor and Antony Gormley, displayed alongside site-specific commissions by artists including Ian Hamilton Finlay, Andy Goldsworthy, Charles Jencks and Marc Quinn.
Jupiter Artland has an extensive education programme, offering students of all ages an insight into the long creative process from commission to installation. The outreach programme combines work with local primary and secondary schools with regular workshops and holiday programmes of art education.
Jupiter Artland also has a café, open Thursday to Sunday.
