Outdoor Art Collection

Since the formation of the UBC Okanagan Campus in 2005, works of outdoor art have been collected and displayed on campus as part of the university’s Public Art Collection.

Outdoor Art Collection


The Public Art Collection is located on the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus, which is situated on traditional, ancestral and unceded Syilx Okanagan Nation Territory.

The Public Art Collection gratefully acknowledges the ongoing support of our generous donors who have helped us build this important collection.


The collection strategy of the Public Art Collection is to preserve, display and research contemporary and historical artworks. Our collection is diverse, and contains both international and local artworks, from emerging and established artists.

You are welcome to send proposals for artwork donations to the curator. Proposals are reviewed on a semi-annual basis by the Public Art Advisory Committee (PAAC).
