About the Collection

The Art Collection comprises around 1000 works of painting, drawing, sculpture and graphic art, including many pieces of national and international significance. Based at the former St Andrews Hall, alongside the Museum of English Rural Life and University’s Special Collections, we are part of the University of Reading. We also work with Reading Museum as the Arts Council England-funded Museums Partnership Reading.

    The murder of #GeorgeFloyd reminds us that the experience of black, Asian, and minority ethnic people in our own communities is blighted by a deep-rooted, pervasive racism that cannot be allowed to thrive in 2020. We condemn racist violence. #BlackLivesMatter.
