Histories in the making: Celebrating 140 years of Kingston School of Art

Posted Wednesday 15 April 2015

Current students at Kingston School of Art: 140 Years exhibition at Kingston MuseumCurrent students enjoying our 'Art School Counterculture' event during the exhibition 'Kingston School of Art: 140 Years' at Kingston MuseumOver the last few months a series of exciting exhibitions and events have marked the 140th anniversary of our art school.

Involving a whole host of alumni, staff and students, these activities have uncovered stories and personalities connected to Knights Park and paid tribute to the skill and expertise of art and design practitioners from Kingston University.

Although the exhibitions have now finished, we are continuing to gather material to help us tell the story of Kingston School of Art in all its various guises from 1875 to the present day.

We'd like your help in the following ways:

  • Record an oral history interview
  • Loan us photographs or coursework for digitisation
  • Help us reconnect with other former students and staff

If you would like to help, please contact project researcher Rob Knifton by emailing or call him on 020 8417 4042.
