Public Sculpture Trail, University of Leeds

The University of Leeds campus is home to an extensive range of public art.

Public Art has played a key role on the University of Leeds campus since 1923, when the controversial First World War Memorial Frieze by Eric Gill was installed, to more recent examples such A Spire by Simon Fujiwara, commissioned for the Laidlaw Library in 2015. Art on campus enhances the experience of students, staff, local communities and visitors, reflecting the academic research themes and learning activities of University life.

The public sculpture trail is open to the public and is free to access. Visit for further details.
