Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Bretton, hosts a new exhibition by artist, agitator and former parliamentary candidate, Bob and Roberta Smith, that campaigns for Art for All. Focusing on 100 years of art education, from 1914 to the modern day, Smith invites ideas and responses toward an art curriculum for a digital 21st century. The exhibition in the Garden Gallery takes visitors on a journey through the history of art education, using key material, selected by Smith, from the National Arts Education Archive.
