1970 Additions to the Art Collection

This week’s #BriginColour focuses on a Brig cover from 1970. We thought we would look at some of the paintings added to the Art Collection in 1970.

In total 25 works of art were collected for the new University in 1970. The University Court Minutes of 27th April note that the Court approved that a first instalment of up to £4,000 from the Appeal Fund be used for the purchase of works of art in 1970.

Notable works include Woman in Fun Fur by Pat Douthwaite.

Black and Red on Blue by Terry Frost

Also collected was Mh10 by Colin Cina which now hangs permanently on stairwell of the Pathfoot Building.
