Sculpture BFA

The department offers equal support for all students, from those who wish to concentrate in a particular process to those who work across disciplines or in more exploratory modes. Sculpture faculty are working artists who bring a diverse array of approaches to making sculpture.

Classes explore issues common to sculptors, such as the role of art in community, a small history of sculpture, presentation and site possibilities, and idea development. Junior and senior major studios offer individual mentor time with faculty as well as group critiques with a team of faculty and guest critics.
