The newly developed heart of our University boasts some great art and design. Commissioned works, exhibitions and environmental graphics help create a space that is dynamic and distinct.

The Tavern - Flinders Uni

yara (2016)
Judy Watson |  born 1959, Mundubbera, Queensland

Conceived as sentinels to watch over and protect the campus, the nine steel-fabricated feathers comprising yara honour the Kaurna Ancestor Spirit Tjilbruke – the glossy ibis – and pay tribute to the traditional owners of the land on which Flinders University was founded. The plume-like forms located across the plaza are linked by strings of poetic text gifted by Kaurna Elder Uncle Lewis Yerloburka O’Brien. View more here.
