Pamplona Campus

Sculptures and art collection

In an attempt at uniting art and vegetation, numerous sculptures are spread out over the campus, such as “Encounter”, by Clemente Ochoa, which presides the Library esplanade, “Broken sphere”, by Faustino Aizkorbe, which adorns the Rector’s Office area, “Partition of the space by the opposition of two dihedrals”, which Jorge Oteiza dedicated to his friend Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oiza, and “Doctor Martín de Azpilcueta”, by Néstor Basterretxea.

The Public University of Navarre currently has an art collection consisting of more than one hundred works. The starting point for the creation of this collection was the drawing which Rafael Alberti drew –one of his popular doves– when the University invited the poet to Pamplona for a season of conferences in April 1990. The University, however, did not seriously get its art collection under way until 1993. The works of art are located indoors in offices, conference rooms, the Library Reading Room and the Canteen building, while others are spread out over the campus.
