'Our Students´ Journey' limited edition signed print by Joe Scarborough
Our Students’ Journey was painted in 2010 by Joe Scarborough and depicts the student journey at the University of Sheffield from arriving in Sheffield from all over the world, and experiencing all aspects of student life, including the RAG boat race and parade, student officer elections and summer activities in Weston Park. Familiar buildings – both old and new - such as the Arts Tower, the Drama Studio, the Beehive Hotel and Meadowhall Shopping centre are also featured. The painting hangs in Coffee Revolution in the Students’ Union.
In 2005 the University commissioned Sheffield artist Joe Scarborough to paint "Our University" and sales of the limited edition signed prints raised over £18,000 for undergraduate scholarships. Joe was honoured with an honorary doctorate in 2008 in recognition for his contribution to the cultural life of the city.
We have now commissioned Joe to paint a sister work to "Our University" entitled "Our Students´ Journey" and we are delighted to be selling limited edition prints. All proceeds will again go to support the provision of scholarships for gifted students in need of financial support, and to help The University’s Alumni Foundation which provides grants for student clubs and societies to enrich the life of the University.
These limited edition prints, measuring 19" x 17" are unframed and packed in protective cardboard tubes and are priced at £20.00 (including VAT) plus P&P (£2.50 UK, £4.00 Europe, £5.50 rest of world).
