The Master in Fine Arts Program in Sculpture is designed for either the student committed to working within the tradition of sculpture or challenging the notions of contemporary art. This program has two options of study, Sculpture (non media specific) or Glass Sculpture. Both options provide students with opportunities to explore material and technical skills with a faculty representing a variety of directions and philosophical attitudes.
The MFA Sculpture program has four full-time faculty: Diane Cox, Brett Hunter and Coral Lambert; and there are three full-time Glass Sculpture faculty: Steve Edwards, Fred Tschida, and Angus Powers.
The Sculpture MFA is a 60 credit, two-year full-time program. This program considers art making in a broad, cross-disciplinary structure. Each accepted student will receive a full tuition waiver and a graduate teaching assistantship/fellowship. Each graduate has a private studio, and 24- hour access to the facilities.
The program’s facilities are comprised of separate studios for metal casting, metal fabricating, wood-working, mixed media and paper, glass blowing, glass casting, cold working glass, neon and light phenomena. These facilities currently exceed 6,000 square feet, meeting or exceeding State health and safety standards. The facilities of this division are accessible to both graduate and undergraduate students, encouraging an active exchange of ideas and the opportunity to view the work of students at all levels.
