University of Salford Art Collection

Welcome to the University of Salford Art Collection website. This growing art collection has existed for 50 years and is for the benefit of staff, students and the public.  The Collection contains around 700 items which are stored and displayed on campus and are available for loan to museums and galleries in the UK and internationally.

The work of our small team is wide and varied and this website is a work in progress. We actively welcome feedback on the design and content of the website in order to inform our aspirations to design a new multi-layered online platform.  We also welcome comments and suggestions regarding the collection.
