Visual Arts

 

The University supports the visual arts, through its extensive fine art collection and through exhibitions and events relating to the visual arts, both on its campuses and collaboratively at the venues of external partner organisations.

The University's sculpture collection at the Streatham Campus is open to all to visit, containing sculptures by artists such as Barbara Hepworth, Peter Thursby, Geoffrey Clark and Elaine M. Goodwin. The University is also developing its sculpture collection at the Cornwall Campus.

The public are also welcomed to the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, a museum containing an enormous collection relating to the history of film and visual media.

The University's Heritage Collections can also be viewed by appointment.  These include a rich variety of archive material including historic prints and maps.
