See a selection of stunning paintings and sculptures by internationally renowned artists such as L.S. Lowry and Henry Moore alongside work by significant artists. There's an innovative programme of temporary exhibitions and inspiring events and activities for all ages. Located in Huddersfield town centre, above the library, it couldn't be easier to visit.
