The Sculpture Area makes use of a cross-disciplinary approach to
creating and producing art. The design of this area is to provide
dedicated students access to the tools, equipment and workspace needed
to create exceptional three-dimensional artwork. Together with Ceramics
and Printmaking, the Sculpture studios are situated in a fully
modernized 20,000 square feet building.
The Sculpture studios are
divided into three large work areas and three specialized spaces. The
Metal studio has a 2-ton crane and forklift and is equipped with ARC,
MIG and TIG welders, oxy/fuel and plasma torches, gear head mill, drill
press and other standard stationary equipment.
The Main studio has a 30 feet high ceiling and can be utilized for
lager scale projects. There is also a paint spray booth in the space
along with a 20" and 14" metal bandsaws, shear, slip roller, tubing
roller, brake and bender. The Wood Studio is fully equipped with a
planer, joiner, panel saw, miter saw, 5hp table saw, scroll saw, lathe
and multiple sanders.
Other spaces include a plaster, plastics, and sandblasting room and a
large combined studio space for undergraduates. Semi-private graduate
studios are conveniently located just outside the studio spaces. in
addition to this, there is a large outdoor work area, which is used for
aluminum casting, storage and individual project fabrication.
