Faculty:  Phillip Shore, Associate 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 45 credits: two semesters of participation in senior seminar (one credit per semester); 12 in art history (6 advanced), 31 in studio courses including 15 credits (12 advanced) in one studio area (beginning studio, two intermediate studios, and two senior studios); the core studio requirements of Drawing I and II, Human Figure, Two-and Three-Dimensional Design, and six credits of electives in other studio experiences outside the area of emphasis. Satisfactory completion of the Senior Exhibition and Comprehensive Examination is required. It is recommended that art majors take Aesthetics for the philosophy elective and seek appropriate electives in other departments.

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 done 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.
