The ability to think three-dimensionally is an essential and empowering tool in the visual arts. Sculpture is a discipline that encompasses a wide variety of media and concerns with the made object at its core. The Sculpture program at BU encompasses a wide range of approaches, methods and skills, with an emphasis on personal expression grounded in material and technique. Students work closely with faculty, peers, and visiting artists, with many hours of concentrated work devoted to the development of personal voice through object making.
