Record number of visitors
The exhibition Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World was a huge success with rave reviews and a record number of 113,275 visitors. Since 1958 (when the museum began keeping precise records of visitor figures) the number of visitors during this period has never been higher. Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World was showing from 28 November 2015 to 17 April 2016. During the same period in 2014-2015, the museum received 69,446 visitors. So with Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World, that number has risen by 63.1% in this period. The museum looks back on this exhibition with pride and satisfaction. The nomination for this award is a wonderful sign of appreciation.
