The Park is home to a number of pieces of sculpture, such as Henry Moore’s Three Standing figures, Barbara Hepworths Single Form, Kenningtons Memorial and the Brown Dog by Nicola Hicks.
There is a long and varied history of sculpture being exhibited in Battersea Park. In 1948 there was a huge exhibition of contemporary work. This was followed by major exhibitions, all staged in the Sub Tropical Garden, in 1951, 1960, 1963 and 1966.
1948 Sculpture Exhibition
Running from May to September of 1948 in the Park, it is hard to underestimate the importance of this exhibition.
1951 Sculpture Exhibition
held between May and September in the Sub Tropical Garden, featuring forty four pieces by internationally recognised artists
Friends Sculpture Prize
For a number of years the Friends of Battersea Park sponsored a Sculpture prize, giving the chance for a student to display a work in the Park for a year. Initially championed by Tom Maxwell, and more recently organised by former RCA graduate and, now ex-, Friends committee member Steve Bunn.
