Walking Through Time

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is a group of three corten steel dinosaurs, each measuring more than eight metres in length and towering up to seven metres high. They resemble two huge children’s model-making kits and appear clumsy and lovable.

From October 2019, two of the three dinosaurs (The Good and The Bad) are on loan to the University of Warwick for one year only and form the focus of a new art and history trail leading across the campus. In addition to The Good and The Bad, the trail incorporates a number of new and existing sculptures from the University of Warwick Art Collection and provides some fascinating and at times gruesome facts, about the history of the site.

Jake and Dinos Chapman are among the best known artists working today. They use material from a wide range of culture to challenge our ideas about past and present society and values.
