Notably, the YSP was awarded the UK Art Fund Prize for “Museum of the Year” in 2014. There are typically around 80 sculptures and installations to see in the open air, including works by Mark di Suvero, Ai Weiwei, Kimsooja, Julian Opie, Sean Scully and Raqs Media Collective. Murray has organized major monographic sculpture exhibitions, including artists Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Sir Anthony Caro, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Joel Shapiro, Marino Marini, Eduardo Chillida, Isamu Noguchi, Jaume Plensa, Ursula von Rydingsvard, and Tony Cragg. Additionally, he has curated permanent site-specific works by Andy Goldsworthy, David Nash, and a Sky Space by James Turrell.
