Students from the University of Westminster were able to submit their entries to the competition. The entries were assessed and chosen by a team of judges from TFL.
Lucy O’Grady, Marketing Manager for the University’s Faculty of Media, Arts and Design, commented on the exciting collaboration, saying: “Working with TFL on the Art on the Underground project has been a fantastic opportunity to work with our neighbours at Northwick Park Underground station to create a welcoming environment for all. The University of Westminster’s Harrow campus specialises in Media Arts and Design and the project has given us a platform to show our work to the local community. We look forward to continue working with London Underground on this project over years to come.”
The University of Westminster’s Harrow Campus at Northwick Park is home to the Faculty of Media, Arts and Design, a hub of talent and creativity influencing future trends in style, design, entertainment, and media industries. Students are taught many disciplines in the fields of Art and Design, Fashion, Film, Journalism and Mass Communications, Music, and Photography.
TFL Art on the Underground said: “Art on the Underground is proud to be able to support the next generation of artists and designers from the University of Westminster Harrow campus. This community project at Northwick Park builds on London Underground’s strong legacy of great art and design and strengthens Transport for London’s links with the people it serves by engaging audiences, re-imagining spaces, and changing the way we experience the city.”
Art on the Underground champions contemporary art by offering the Tube as a unique opportunity to an international range of artists; from those with an established reputation to those at the beginning of promising careers.
