Sculpture in the Garden

International Sculpture Show on hold

The University of Leicester is reviewing its public engagement activities and as a result will not be hosting the International Sculpture Show this year. The University is aware that the show had become a regular feature in the arts calendar and appreciates that this will be a disappointment to many. Nevertheless, the University is committed to providing a wealth of public engagement activities, and the recently opened gallery extension in the Attenborough Arts Centre (formerly Embrace Arts) is an exciting example that provides one of the largest spaces dedicated to contemporary art in the East Midlands.

The University has a number of permanent sculptures available for viewing within the Botanic Garden. A short guide to them and the artists who created them is available to download.

There are also many sculptures scattered across the main University campus, all of which can be enjoyed by the public. A map showing location of sculptures is available here.

Future events will be advertised on both the University and the Botanic Garden websites.
