Art used to attract shoppers to Chesterfield’s The Yards

A collection of quirky sculptures are to be added to a Derbyshire town’s shopping area to help bring in more visitors.

Artworks including a series of gloved hands offering up various items are to be installed at The Yards in Chesterfield over the next few months.

Other installations planned for the area include a sculpture of a falcon and a sleeping puppy.

The project was set up by Chesterfield Borough Council using European funding.

The series of gloved hands will be attached to various points and will hold items related to nearby shops.

The puppy sculpture will sit near to Theatre Yard which was once known as The Kennels. The falcon sculpture will be placed in Falcon Yard.

Good luck! It will need more than a bit of art……
