WANDER is the first trail of its kind in the country encompassing a series of public art installations on a national trail. WANDER – Art on the Yorkshire Wolds Way creates an evocative attraction comprising landmark art installations along the national walking route plus an additional fitting of creatively crafted benches etched with poetry.
WANDER is inspired by the beautiful and undulating Yorkshire Wolds landscape as David Hockney famously is. Over recent years, Hockney has been prolific in producing artworks featuring the East Yorkshire landscape including the famous Bigger Trees by Warter and his Woldgate Woods series.
Artworks that complement and enhance the landscape are installed along the 79-mile National Trail - which starts on the banks of the River Humber and finishes on the dramatic Filey Brigg headland - by nationally significant artists. The resulting works of art vary in type and scale and are installed in a variety of beautiful and unusual settings. As local communities have been heavily consulted to develop works of art that best benefit their areas, some of the pieces will even double up as beneficial infrastructure.
