Before stepping down as President & Provost of UCL, Professor Michael Arthur launched the new UCL East Provost Art Prize. Until the opening of the new campus, the Prize will annually recognise the achievements of five graduates from the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL who will each receive a £2,000 award. Their selected artwork will feature at UCL East, on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
