Grizedale was at the forefront in the development of outdoor
art in the 1970s and the Forest is home to over 60 sculptures
including works by Andy Goldsworthy, Richard Harris and Peter
Nikoloski, which attract thousands of visitors.
The Forestry Commission recently decided to take over
responsibility for introducing new works of art so that it
could add to the existing collection: no new works had been
commissioned at Grizedale for several years.
The first of the new pieces commissioned by Grizedale was
this aviary by Pauline, containing an owl, a raven and two
crows. It was installed on 10th April 2006. The event was
recorded and broadcast by Border TV.
