University of Salford Art Collection

Welcome to the University of Salford Art Collection website. This growing art collection exists for the benefit of staff, students and the public.

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.

This year we have a number of major projects in the pipeline – so watch this space or register to our mailing list to receive regular updates.
