The 1967 exhibition runs until 24 August 2018 and features work by artists Bridget Riley, George Wylie, Wilhelmina Barnes Graham and Alan Davie, drawn from the University's Art Collection. Also on show from the collection will be pieces by Patrick Heron, Michael Tyzack and many others. The Art Collection at the University of Stirling is a collection of contemporary Scottish Art. The Pathfoot Gallery is open to the public Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm.
Pathfoot was the first campus building to be completed and has been praised as “an outstanding example of post-war Modernist Scottish architecture, of international significance” (Category A Listing). The building has hosted the Art Collection since 1967, when the first Principal, Dr Tom Cottrell, insisted that art should be “part of everyday life on the campus”.
Festival of Museums is an annual three-day celebration of history, culture and arts during which museums of all shapes and sizes across Scotland host special events to showcase their unique collections and programmes. Over a single weekend in May, Scotland’s museums come together to throw open their doors, vaults and imaginations to celebrate the magic of history, heritage, and science.
This is event is part of the Muriel Spark 100 programme.
