Tate St Ives attracts approximately 200,000 visitors a year. In 2003, the year of the Hepworth Centenary, it attracted 267,000 visitors. In 2009 the gallery brought approximately £12 million into the Cornish economy, and in the summer of 2010 nine percent of visitors to Cornwall came with the intention of visiting Tate St Ives.
Building on this success, the Tate St Ives Phase 2 proposals offer the opportunity to transform the gallery into a dynamic hub, offering the space for a full programme of art and audience activity, and a public platform for the outputs of the associated research and artist residency programmes.
