Significant buildings and spaces on the Crawley Campus are embellished with applied or freestanding artworks, sometimes inherent in the architectural design like the winged lion frieze at the eaves to Winthrop Hall or the decorative panels built into the Institute of Agriculture Building, and sometimes free-standing like the sculptures in bronze and stone.

Courtyards, lobbies and landscaped spaces provide public and private places across the Campus — a sublime and challenging experience. Join this walk to discover the artworks in their architectural and landscape contexts. You may be surprised by works you’ve not previously seen or fully appreciated!

Ronald Bodycoat is a heritage architect and immediate past President of UWAHS.
