A sculpture of 3 steel cyclinders positioned at a slight angle to the ground. They are hollow and painted red. There is a gap down one side so you can see inside the cyclinder - each painted in a different colour (blue, green and yellow). A bare tree, low red brick building and grey modern building are in the background and everything is reflected in a large puddle in the foreground.

All events are free and open to all but we recommend booking in advance.


During the week we will be launching a new sculpture leaflet featuring an illustrated map by Pickle Illustration. The leaflet has been produced to help people find out more about our collection of sculptures. It will be given away at all in person events during the week and distributed across the campus and town. If you would like a copy of the leaflet then please email 

We will also be launching Cleaved Into, an activity pack which prompts creative engagement with the sculpture collection. Cleaved Into was produced by NEUSCHLOSS, a group of staff and postgraduate students at Northumbria University, who share an interest in collaborative and collective art making.  

Photography competition 

Loughborough University students and staff can enter our sculpture photography competition, which closes on Sunday 19 February. We're looking for photographs that present new ways of looking at campus sculpture. Nine outstanding photographs will be chosen for display in Pilkington Library with cash prizes of £250 and £100 for the two best entries. The selected photographs will be unveiled in the library on Monday 6 March.
