Here’s a few sculptures which can be spotted around campus:

 

Workshop of John Nost the Elder, Equestrian Statue of King George I, 1717-22. (This is the oldest public sculpture in Birmingham!)

 

Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, Faraday, 2000. (This sculpture was made to mark the centenary of the University of Birmingham’s Royal Charter.)

 

Bernard Sidnall, Girl in a Hat, 1972. (This girl always maintains her chilled out pose, even in the frosty January weather!)

 

William James Bloyce, Mermaid Fountain, 1961. (The mermaid is probably the most popular sculpture amongst students – joyfully welcoming them into the Guild!)

This is just a few of the vast range of sculptures in UoB’s collection, all well worth stopping to have a look at.
