University Art Collection

Visiting us on campus is a chance to discover the University of Warwick’s unique collection of modern and contemporary visual art and sculpture.

Established in 1965 to showcase work by young artists that would inspire and challenge campus visitors, the collection features some of the most exciting artists of the last 50 years - including Andy Goldsworthy, Eduardo Paolozzi, Zarina Bhimji, Richard Deacon, Laura Ford and Clare Woods.

Spanning over 900 works across painting, photography, print, ceramics and sculpture, this remarkable collection can be enjoyed in buildings and outdoor spaces throughout the University of Warwick campus.

Warwick Arts Centre itself features two specially commissioned pieces by Richard Wentworth and Mark Titchner. You can discover other parts of the collection - including two giant steel dinosaurs by Jake and Dinos Chapman - by following one of our special Sculpture Trails.

There’s a full online introduction to the collection to browse beforehand, while maps and guides - including for people with sensory impairment - are available here and from the Arts Centre Box Office.
