PRIVATE COTSWOLD ESTATE ESTABLISHES CULTURAL ART PARK

WORK FROM WORLD RENOWNED ARTISTS AND SCULPTORS WILL BE ON DISPLAY

 

March, 2021 – Private Cotswold estate The Lakes by YOO has announced it will introduce a new cultural concept called The Lakes Art Park, which will be a revolving exhibition of installations by some of the world’s finest artists and sculptors at the estate.

 

The first installation will be a large white sculpture of an iconic dog, which many may recognise as one of the most famous creations by the world-renowned artist Yoshitomo Nara.

 

Yoshitomo Nara‘s sculpture Your Dog embodies the spirit of a child’s playmate as well as that of a menacing creature, larger than life. Its huge scale reminds viewers how the world looks through the eyes of a child. Nara’s work has attracted large audiences around the world, from fine-art collectors to commercial consumers, the opportunity to have the sculpture at the estate was one that could not be missed.

 

           

 

“It has always been our wish to encourage new experiences at the Lakes, primarily through outdoor experiences such as swimming, fishing, cycling, climbing, sailing and bushcraft. We are also keen to encourage learning and education with our conservation initiatives, sustainability goals and more recently with our new farmyard and beehives. The Art Park is a cultural extension of these initiatives and we hope that this outdoor live exhibition will further enhance the overall experience for families and young people on the estate,” said The Lakes by YOO Director, Giles Baker.

 

Sat amongst the secluded natural woodland in the meadow at The Lakes by YOO, residents and their families will be able to enjoy the Art Park, with the aspiration for more sculptures and pieces to be added and changed as the seasons come and go.

 

Within easy reach of London and international transport links, the Lakes by YOO is home to luxury family residences set within 850 acres of private and glorious parkland lakes, woods and meadows. Prices for homes at the estate range between £2m and £7m, with many available for rental at a cost between £12,000 and £40,000 per week
