More about

The University of Hertfordshire Art Collection comprises over 500 artworks displayed across its campuses. A wonderfully diverse collection, it features 14 impressive external sculptures and a portfolio of paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, ceramics and mixed-media works. Highlights of the Collection include works by Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, Andy Goldsworthy and Alan Davie. The UH Art Collection was established in 1952, as part of Hertfordshire County Council’s commitment to the post-war programme. Artworks enhance the University environment by presenting modern and contemporary art in places where people study, work and visit. The Collection seeks to inspire and provoke, to generate new conversations for the University and regional communities. Chapman Gallery is one of the main gallery spaces dedicated to showcasing the Collection. The architecture bears witness to the institution's incredible evolution – for over sixty years this was the gateway into Hatfield Technical College, then Hatfield Polytechnic and now the University of Hertfordshire.
