Arts in Store

Visitors to the J.B. Priestley Library may notice changes on level 0 extension.  The area was home to artworks and heritage objects reflecting the University’s rich history, including the Charter and the Grant of Arms, the Commonweal Hoggett memorial, and a portrait gallery of vice-chancellors and other University characters.  These works are in store for safekeeping during major building works in the extension over the next few months.  The layout of the floor will change, so not all the art and objects will return to the same locations – I’ll share news of their new homes in due course.
