Brunel University has a diverse collection of artworks, which are displayed throughout its campus in Uxbridge, West London. It holds over 80 oil paintings, most of which are contemporary works. Artworks have been acquired for the University since its earliest days and the collection is added to annually. Of particular significance is our collection of 26 paintings by artist Alan Bennett, who has depicted the unique architecture and landscape of the campus from the 1970s to the present day. Many of his donated works and special commissions portray Brunel and its surroundings, and this collection reflects both the changing face of the university and the journey of an artist’s practice which spans 40 years. We also have on display several of Bennett’s significant early abstract works. The goal of the Artworks Collection has been to enhance the university environment and to benefit students, staff and visitors. The collection is located across the Uxbridge campus and artworks can be found in nearly all academic and administrative buildings.
