Move beyond the walls of the Gallery and learn even more about Public Sculpture in Leeds and the work of Alfred Drury with this special walking tour.

Starting from The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery, join Dr Rebecca Wade on a walking tour of the public sculpture by Alfred Drury here in Leeds. Designed to complement and contextualise our current exhibition, Alfred Drury and the New Sculpture, this tour will encouarage you to look at the City Square scheme with new eyes; and will trace the path of Circe (1894) from Leeds Art Gallery, to Park Square, to Leeds City Museum.

Dr Rebecca Wade is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Henry Moore Institute working on nineteenth-century plaster casts, exhibitions and art education. She completed her PhD at the University of Leeds in 2012.

This is a free workshop but places are limited so please book in advance. A refundable booking fee of £5.95 will be taken upon booking. This will be returned to you on arrival at the workshop. Cancellations within 48 hours of the event will not be eligible for a refund.
