Right, yes, as far as it goes.But I'm going to be strict about this one because;1. RikJ got it far too quickly and...2. (& I'm sure RikJ will approve) I want people to do a bit of research, either on foot or on the internet.So...Name of the sculpture.Name of the artist.Date of installation.Go for it, Dear Readers!

I walk past this at least 4 times a day - very nice it is when the sun is shining!It is a piece by Lorna Green, who was a fine art student in Leeds in the early 90's. The piece shown is called 'conversation' and was installed in 1999 in Chancellors Court. It was an addition to earlier work around the court called 'meet, sit and talk' (1995), which is an combination of landscaping and sculpture, and generally used as a picnic site when the sun comes out.Gosh SecretLeeds I cant believe you have turned me into such a knowledgeable geek!
