Sculpture

Faculty:  Phillip Shore, Professor
Undergraduate degrees offered: B.A.

Sculpture Studio

The students study three-dimensional expression through a variety of contemporary approaches. Both practical and conceptual growth of self-expression takes place through the direct use of diverse sculptural materials and techniques including bronze, fabricated metal, stone, wood, and found objects.

Basic Requirements

A total of 46 credits are required, including 14 art core credits consisting of Basic Drawing I & II, 2D & 3D Design, History of Art & Architecture I & II. Students are also required to take two beginning studios in their sophomore year, preferably one in a 2D and one in a 3D discipline. It is recommended that art majors take Aesthetics as an elective and seek appropriate electives in other departments. During the student’s junior and senior years they will concentrate on their chosen discipline. Seniors will also participate in two semesters of Senior Seminar (one credit per semester). Satisfactory completion of the Senior Exhibition and the Art History Comprehensive Examination is required.

Comprehensive Examination

In the second semester of the junior year the work of the student is reviewed by the entire art faculty. A second review occurs in the first senior semester, followed by a final review in the last semester prior to the presentation of the senior capstone project, a solo exhibition held on campus. It must contain work completed predominantly during the Senior Studio course. The exhibition--selected, designed and constructed by the student--is judged by the faculty in an oral examination. In the senior year all art majors must also pass an art history comprehensive exam.

Sisters Serving UD: Sister Mary Angelica: A Thousandfold Back

It is no surprise that the University of Dallas, chartered by religious women, has had over 50 alumnae who have said “yes” to the call to religious life. In 1952, The Superior of the Western Province of the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur, Mother Theresa Weber, declared, "We need a Catholic co-educational college in this area!" On May 25, 1955, the Sisters officially received the charter for the University of Dallas. UD's first trustees were all religious women: Mother Theresa Weber, Sister Mildred Manning, Sister Mary Frances Connaughton, Sister Mary Byron, Sister Myrtl Owens and Sister Elizabeth Johnston.
