UP Museums launch new art beyond walls sculpture route

Posted on November 13, 2019

The UP Museums are in charge of over 57 collections of the University of Pretoria.  This includes the public sculptures visible on the different campuses of the university. 

In order to allow staff, students and other visitors to better engage with the collections, the sculptural curator Lelani Nicholaisen and the museum staff explored different options and developed a public sculptural walk, which can be self-explored or enjoyed as part of a tour offered by the museum's interpretive officer. 

The new sculpture route was introduced as part of the International Museum Day celebrations, which took place in May.  After engaging in numerous tours with museum audiences throughout the year, the route was tried and tested and the designs and maps were further refined.  Now, after the initial trial period is over, the UP Museums are officially launching the brand new "Art Beyond Walls Sculpture Route". 

Please see the attached eBrochure for more details about the route.  Alternatively, for enquiries and tour bookings, please contact the museum interpretive officer Nicole Hoffmann:
