Sculpture

 

The Sculpture Program at Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi is dedicated to fostering a dynamic community that examines how ideas can take shape in space. Traditional and non-traditional materials and techniques are studied as students investigate intent and installation when making art.

Working alongside sculpture faculty and graduate students, undergraduate sculpture students are challenged to develop the technical abilities, problem solving skills, and professional practices that will help craft an individual studio practice.  Led by conceptual exploration and visual communication, the artworks generated range from temporary to permanent, miniature to architectural, pedestal to installation. 

Within this dynamic community, as the students’ ideas and intentions develop into individual expressions, a wide variety of historical and contemporary sculptors and sculptural work is explored as we consider the role(s) art plays within the social, political, and economic realities of our present society.

The sculpture area includes a primary sculpture studio classroom, a wax and plaster room, a woodshop, and a large, and a covered metal casting (bronze, aluminum, iron) and metal fabrication space.
