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.
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.
