06.07.2017The Hepworth Wakefield wins Museum of the Year 2017

Last night The Hepworth Wakefield was announced as the winner of the Art Fund’s Museum of the Year award in a ceremony at the British Museum.


'The Hepworth Wakefield has been a powerful force of energy from the moment it opened in 2011, but it has just kept growing in reach and impact ever since. David Chipperfield’s building has proved a perfect stage – both for the display of collections and as a platform for a breathtaking sequence of special exhibitions, curated with determined originality by the talented curatorial team.' – Stephen Deuchar, Art Fund director and chair of judges.
