The sculpture program at the University of Minnesota, Morris provides tools and equipment for working with wood, metal, plaster, clay, and mixed media. Faculty are active professional artists representing a breadth of working methodologies ranging from traditional to conceptual. Students are encouraged to pursue cross-disciplinary work with other media such as ceramics, book arts, and painting.
Students pursing work in sculpture should be sure to take advantage of:
- separate work spaces accommodating tabletop and large-scale work;
- tool room, metal fabricating and welding area, woodworking area, and overhead crane;
- small classes allowing designated work space in the studio;
- spacious campus grounds for outdoor work and display;
- the annual iron pour in Herman, Minnesota. Organized by local artists, enthusiasts, and professionals including our own Professor Jennifred Nellis, this community event takes place on the grounds of a preserve that also functions as a burgeoning sculpture park.
