The University of Cape Town boasts a vast visual art collection, which comprises approximately 1 700 artworks across 70 UCT buildings. The Works of Art Collection commitee oversees the display and integration of art into campus life and plays a critical role in redressing some of the past’s injustices through its commitment to purchase artwork by both prominent and emerging artists in South Africa.

Their latest addition is a website that makes art more accessible to the UCT community and wider public: www.artcollection.uct.ac.za
