Located in Goodwood, West Sussex, Cass Sculpture Foundation is a charitable foundation established in 1992 by Wilfred and Jeannette Cass, dedicated to commissioning new sculpture from emerging and established artists. The Foundation's 26 acre grounds are home to an ever-changing display of 80 monumental sculptures, all of which are for sale with the proceeds shared equally between the artists and the Foundation to invest in new commissions.
By combining the best of philanthropic and commercial commissioning models, Cass Sculpture Foundation is able continuously to commission and show new sculpture; to date the Foundation has produced over 400 sculptural works.
The Visitors’ Gallery houses a series of small-scale, regularly changing indoor exhibitions giving artists an opportunity to exhibit their works at an internationally-established institution.
The Archive, located within the Foundation Centre, is a unique educational and historical resource of contemporary sculpture. It houses over 400 maquettes, working models and original drawings pertaining to the Cass Sculpture Foundation's commissions.
In autumn 2012, the Foundation will present an exhibition of major new sculptures by Tony Cragg on Exhibition Road, in collaboration with the London 2012 Festival. The outdoor exhibition will be complemented by a number of indoor works on display at the V&A and the Science Museum. An exhibition of Tony Cragg works will also be on display at Cass Sculpture
Foundation in summer 2012.
During 2011 Cass Sculpture Foundation experienced record visitor numbers.
