Contemporary sculpture is a broad and diverse field that includes object making, large-scale architectural installation, performance-based work, time-based work, and time-based media.
The Sculpture Program provides the skills and concepts essential to creative growth. Courses are designed to integrate the development of technical skills with critical discourse and theory, and knowledge of contemporary sculpture. Tyler’s highly regarded Critical Dialogues series regularly brings nationally known artists, critics, and authors to campus to present their work, lead discussions and critique student pieces. Students are encouraged to explore interdisciplinary projects, which mesh public art with video, sound, performance, installation, and digital imaging.
