A new art trail has been launched at the University of Leeds to guide people around the institution’s impressive collection of public artworks.

The Curating the Campus public art trail and accompanying leaflet heralds a summer-long series of public events aimed at highlighting the University’s artistic treasures to all members of the public, as well as students and staff.

Among the pieces is a striking new sculpture by a rising star on the international art scene, Simon Fujiwara’s A Spire, outside the University’s impressive new Laidlaw library.

The summer series of free public art events ranges from 15 minute talks about sculptures around campus with their creators or University and Gallery staff, to family-friendly Saturday afternoon events in the University’s Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery.
