The Art Collection at the University is a varied one comprising of over 500 works including paintings, sketches, tapestries, sculpture and silver. Artist search A-Z
The tradition of collecting art goes back to the founding of the University in 1967 when Professor Tom Cottrell was the first Principal. A scientist by training, he came from an artistic background and had very clear ideas about art and its place in society. He felt that art should be part of the everyday experience at the University and it is his philosophy that has been driving and inspiring us to keep on collecting and showing exciting art to the public ever since.
9am to 10pm 7days throughout the year
Closed: 24th December to 7th January
The majority of the Art Collection can be found in the Pathfoot building. However, art and sculpture are dotted all around the campus. A sculpture trail detailing locations will be available very soon.
