The Earth Gallery - where art and geology intersect

The artworks displayed in this area of the University are part of an ongoing collaboration between Bristol based artists and staff and students from the School of Earth Sciences and wider academic community at the University of Bristol.

The idea for the exhibition space grew out of a Leverhulme Artist in Residence grant to Rodney Harris in 2015 which culminated in a new interpretation of William Smith’s 1815 geological map, on permanent display in the School of Earth Sciences.

The Earth Gallery is open to th public during our Wednesday Open Afternoons or as part of the Wills Memorial Building Tower Tour.
