Exhibition from March 21st to August 14th 2020
With the focus on the Harewood’s bird collection, and the 50th anniversary of the Bird Garden, this Spring Harewood celebrates with a new exhibition in the House by renowned British sculptor Kate MccGwire. With 9 sculptures including one new commission, this exhibition, entitled Menagerie, connects the themes of nature, sustainability and art in a series of beautiful and intricate pieces.
Kate works with the feathers in a meticulous way to create the shapes and colours of her sinuous sculptures. They are trimmed and sorted by size, colour and pattern variation. This year for her new commission in the House, this job was undertaken by a team of Harewood staff and volunteers, with feathers used from the Bird Garden as part of her new piece.
From March 14th to July 12th 2020
