Art meets Research on campus this June

The University of Exeter is a research-led university, but did you know that it has lots of collaborations between artists and researchers? A new free exhibition on the Streatham campus will showcase the work of 40 selected south west artists who have been inspired by University research themes in their artwork. The Observatory: perspectives on landscape, society and spirit runs from 11-18 June, from 10am to 5pm in the Forum. Work ranges from painting to print and stained glass and most of it is for sale. Entry to the exhibition is free and it is open every day including the weekend.

There are also a range of associated events taking place during the week, including free guided tours of the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, Sculpture Trail, delightful Campus Grounds and the Jubilee Water walk.

Visit the Arts and Culture website for more information on The Observatory and associated events, including Think...Art; a family activity day held on Saturday 17 June, 11am - 4pm.
