Special Studies in Sculpture presents the opportunity for advanced studio work in a predetermined area of specialization. Past sections have focused on themes such as kinetic sculpture and site-specific sculpture.
Advanced Sculpture offers students the opportunity to pursue individualized projects. Students develop a mastery of various materials and methods based on a core sculptural discipline or theme. Past course themes have included public art, installation, advanced foundry techniques, and nature-based art.
In Senior Project in Sculpture, students pursue individualized work with guidance and critique from faculty and peers. The independent nature of this course requires the proposal and execution of a sculpture project under the direction of a major professor.
After passing to thesis and selecting a major professor, graduate students enrolled in ART 8000 Thesis Research: Sculpture are expected to write a proposal outlining creative, formal, and research goals for a year-long project focused on a body of work that culminates in a professionally mounted solo exhibition and written thesis about the work.
