The Earth Gallery - where art and geology intersect

The artworks displayed in this area of the University are part of an ongoing collaboration between staff and students from the School of Earth Sciences and visual artists based at Spike Island studios in 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 Earth Sciences common room.

The Earth Gallery can be viewed by visitors to the School of the Earth Sciences, or as part of the Wills Memorial Building tower tour.
