From traditional to experimental, bring shape to your ideas.
Sculpture is an inclusive, diverse, and ever-changing discipline.
Our Sculpture program honors traditional skills and techniques while encouraging experimental ideas and the exploration of new media. Addressing contemporary concerns, you’ll build your practice making objects, site-specific work, installation art, inter/multimedia and video projects.
“Sculpture at Purchase is multidisciplinary, engaging traditional and new genre practices. Our wood, metal, ceramic and bronze casting facilities are state of the art and courses in performance, social practice, installation, and digital media round out an exciting program that produces socially conscious global citizens.”
