SLU has one of Sweden's largest public art collections. The collection consists of contemporary Swedish art from the 1970's and 1980's. The total amount of artwork within the collection is 2 500, to been seen in Ultuna, Alnarp, Umeå, Skara and Skinnskatteberg.

Art should evoke emotions! But art and decoration also have important functions to entertain employees and students at SLU.

According to the SLU website on art and decoration art should

[...] encourage us in our work, stimulate discussion and make us reflect. These features fit well into a university where reflection and questioning should be a natural part of everyday life. [...]

The Departments as well as the individual employees can contact the SLU artwork officer with requests for art decoration. 

Outside the MVM building, there is a sculpture called Fractal Cloud that you can read more about here.
