Join us for our annual walk looking at the sculptures in their winter setting, then warm-up in the Art + Design Gallery with mince pies and a warm drink.

If you are familiar to campus, you can take a ‘new’ walk around, paying attention to objects that you may have passed by.
If you are new to campus, join us for a gentle walk to find out about campus and our art collection.
All welcome.

Please note – booking is essential so we can update attendees with any protocol, changes or restrictions due to COVID19.

About the Collection

The University of Hertfordshire Art Collection features over 500 artworks displayed across its campuses. Hosted by UHArts, this walk introduces 14 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.
