Our Sculpture Walk encourages you to take a new walk around the campus, paying attention to objects that you may have passed by.
The University of Hertfordshire Art Collection features 500 artworks displayed across its campuses. Hosted by UH Art Collection, UH Arts, this walk introduces the 12 outdoor sculptures located 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 an abstract stone sculpture by the iconic Barbara Hepworth, 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.
We hope you will enjoy the range of different sculptures and the new responses they may trigger. Self-guided walks are also available using our Sculpture Walk Map which can be downloaded here (scroll over numbers to access information about each sculpture). Alternatively pick-up a map at foyers, cafes and reception desks across the campuses.
