Acquiring and managing artwork


From the Penguin on the John Watkins Plaza, to Sidney and Beatrice Webb in the Shaw Library, at LSE we have acquired artworks for display across the campus by commission and donation. We will continue to acquire artworks as the campus develops capitalising on its unique opportunity for developing links between art and the social sciences. We also accept the loan of artworks for display on campus for fixed periods.

More information on the procedures relating to acquiring art work is available below:
