Almost a year has passed since the brutal theft of Hepworth's Two Forms (Divided Circle) from Dulwich Park overnight on 19th/20th December 2011.
Southwark Council have issued a press release with details of the shortlisted artists for the commissioning of a new artwork for Dulwich Park following the theft of Barbara Hepworth's Two Forms in December 2011
The month of May sees the park graduate from the lush greens of spring into awesome displays of colour.
You may have noticed the recent works in Dulwich by street artist Stik – there are two in Court Lane.
Some of you will remember Matthew Gilbey, who was apprenticed to Head Gardener Ric Glenn.
The theft of the Hepworth sculpture 'Two Forms' has united diverse groups of people who would not otherwise have had cause to work together. DPF is planning an exhibition about the sculpture to take place during the Dulwich Park Festival Fair (see below) in a marquee near the site from which the piece was stolen.
The park is suffering from a worrying phenomenon, the incidence of which is on the increase: dogs ripping the bark from trees.
