Public Art Walk
22 Aug 2019 1pm - 2pm
Join us on a walk around the University of Leeds campus to explore our collection of Public Art.
Take some time out of your day to enjoy a breath of fresh air, stretch your legs and take in the sights of the University of Leeds. Learn some interesting facts about the art works around campus – revisit familiar favourites and discover hidden gems.
Works to see may include Barbara Hepworth’s "Dual Form" and Hubert Dalwood’s "Untitled Bas-Relief", along with works by Mitzi Cuncliffe, Quentin Bell, Lorna Green and many more.
We will be on our feet in the open air for approximately 45 minutes, come rain or shine! Make sure you wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Please contact the Gallery in advance if your mobility is limited so we can plan the route accordingly.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
Wheelchair access to the galleries is through the Chemistry Building to the right of the Parkinson Building steps. The entrance is marked “Chemistry” and has ramp access.
The accessible wheelchair entrance opens automatically between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. On Saturdays, visitors can press the buzzer above the card reader and speak to a member of staff who can open the door remotely.
