The University campus is home to an extensive range of public art, and our new Public Art Project aims to make these works on campus more visible and accessible to everyone. 

The Public Art programme for 2016 focuses on the University's rich textile heritage as part of Yorkshire Year of the Textile. You can also browse our public art online and discover more about the sculptural works in our collection and their individual histories.

The updated 2016 version of the Public Art Trail is now available to download, and can be picked up from The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery from 18th May. The updated trail includes new sculptures such as the recently re-instated Hubert Dalwood relief, and the Grade II listed 'A Celebration of Engineering Sciences' by Allan Johnson.
