The University of Hertfordshire Art Collection features 500 artworks displayed across its campuses. Hosted by UH Arts, this walk introduces the 13 outdoor sculptures, located principally 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.
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
Main Reception, 13:00.
Our Sculpture Map can be found in foyers, cafes and reception desks across the two campuses. Or you can download a digital copy.
