Fountain outside Cartwright Hall

About

Stroll around Lister Park to view sculpture and public artwork, some on loan by the artists, others from Bradford’s own collections.

See Bingley based artist Marcus Levine’s steel clout nail sculpture ‘Hung Out to Dry’ and family favourite, fibre glass ‘Hochlandbew’ by Otmar Alt.

New to the Art in the Park series:
As if by magic on Yorkshire Day, a statue of Peter Pan has appeared in Bradford’s Lister Park as a gift from philanthropist Sir Trevor Pears.

The present cast is one of an edition of only eight full-scale versions made by the celebrated Morris Singer Foundry for the Fine Art Society from a bronze in Sefton Park, Liverpool.

The original, placed in London’s Kensington Gardens, was produced by renowned artist George James Frampton in 1912 in which the popular JM Barrie character is lifted up on a swirling rock populated by fairies, rabbits, squirrels and mice.

Other models and casts of the monument are to be found as far afield as Brussels, New Jersey, Toronto and Perth, Australia. Parts of the original plaster model are in the Victoria and Albert Museum.
