Visit Venue Website

For the first time ever, you can visualise the impact of art on your brainwaves as Art Fund, the national charity for art, are touring technology that brings this to life in real time and in 3-D.

Join us at The Hepworth Wakefield and try on EEG headsets which capture your brain data while you look at the art and objects in our collection. You’ll see your brainwaves on a screen to show the impact of art on your brain.

By illustrating the impact of art on our brains and emotions, Art Fund hopes to encourage visiting museums and galleries with a National Art Pass, which allows people to enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic houses across the UK as well as 50% off major exhibitions and discounts in museum shops and cafes.

The headsets are adjustable and suitable for adults. Children are welcome to join and try the headsets too.

Exhibition entry is £13/£11/FREE for Members, Wakefield District residents and under 18s. National Art Pass holders will get 50% off the price of their ticket (£6.50).

Non-Wakefield families can get 50% off adult tickets when visiting with children/under 18s during the half-term holidays.

The ‘Art on the Brain’ pop-up is a free drop-in event, included in your general admission ticket.
Morning only on Friday 31st May
All day (10am – 5pm) on Saturday 1st June
