The Sculpture program encourages the development of a studio practice that embraces a cross-disciplinary, studio-based curriculum that allows students to progress in a manner that promotes a highly individualized undergraduate experience. Working closely with students and faculty from all the studio programs, sculpture majors are expected to explore the variety and breadth of contemporary art practice. The Sculpture program avoids a material- or method-specific emphasis and focuses instead on the acquisition of skills in response to individual needs. Traditional processes are made available during the introduction to sculpture methods and practices in the sophomore year. Experimental three- and four-dimensional, temporal and installation, and collaborative and collective practices are also encouraged. Conceptualization, discourse, and critical evaluation are stressed as the skills most important as the basis for all studio pursuits. Junior and senior sculpture majors share studio facilities with majors from across the studio programs, creating a diverse and vibrant studio community.
