To protect the safety of our community and to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Art & Design Gallery is now closed to the public until further notice and all UH Arts events until the end of May are postponed or cancelled. This decision has been made in line with current University policy, following advice from the Government and the Director of Public Health from Hertfordshire County Council.
Our team will be in touch shortly with all our customers, performers, artists and partners to advise next steps, and we will ensure the latest information is posted on our website and social media channels.
We thank you for your understanding.
The University of Hertfordshire Art Collection features over 500 artworks displayed across its campuses. Hosted by UHArts, this walk introduces 12 outdoor sculptures on College Lane campus.
The Sculpture Walk presents an eclectic group of works which map the changing characteristics of British Sculpture since the 1950s. You will encounter a bronze torso by Henry Moore’s pupil John Farnham and a bespoke wall relief map by Trevor Tennant. The trail reveals Land Art by Andy Goldsworthy, as well as sound sculpture, interactive sculpture, assemblages and intervention into the landscape.
Our Sculpture Walk encourages you to leave your desk to take a new walk around the campus, paying attention to objects that you may have passed by. We hope you will enjoy the range of different sculptures and the new responses they may trigger.
Every first Thursday of the month
Our Sculpture Map can be found in foyers, cafes and reception desks across the two campuses.
Or you can download a digital copy.
