Public art has been integral to UNSW since its inception.

From its earliest days the University has engaged leading contemporary artists to work closely with architects on building projects and placed sculptures in its grounds.

Public art is a feature of UNSW with sculptures, murals, tapestries and mosaics located throughout the campus.

The ongoing care and management of the University’s public art is shared by Estate Management and the Art Unit.

Take our self-guided tour of art on the Kensington campus to discover the many works of art on campus and the stories behind them.
