Arts collection

You’ll find works from the University’s rich and varied arts and crafts collection across Loughborough University’s main campus. There are landscape paintings, modernist sculptures, portraits, digital works, textiles, busts, prints, furniture (some of it in everyday use!) and more.

Artists include well-known figures such as Bridget Riley, Lynn Chadwick, John Bratby and Edward Bawden; current and former students; and staff members from throughout the University’s history.

New works regularly enter the collection, including the winners of the annual Edward Sharp Prize – which celebrates outstanding works from the University’s Degree Show – and works commissioned by LU Arts and Radar.

You can find information on particular aspects of the collection by clicking the relevant link on the right of the page. The 'Sculpture' page includes a link to a 3km step-free walking route, which guides you through the heart of our Loughborough campus via many of the fascinating sculptures on public display.

You can also view information on some of our sculptures and our oil paintings via ArtUK.
