    1. Thanks for your comment, you raise a good point. We unfortunately could not get in to see the exhibit to write about until very late, and it’s only up for one week. In the future, we will strive to give people more advance notice.

  1. Congratulations to the MFA Sculpture classes of 2020 and 2021 for your wonderful exhibition! School of Visual Arts is grateful to David Snyder, Lissa Cramer and the BU Art Galleries for your role in the MFA thesis exhibition process. Each of the artists brought my attention to specific interactions with space, boundaries, culture and one another. It’s exciting to see your work in person.

  2. With the passing of Nick Edmonds this pandemic year I am viewing the current sculpture MFA exhibition with a heavy heart I fear. There is no interaction orctransformstion of materials – sadly. What you see and hear may involve thoughts and considerations but leaves an impression of dull observational expertise – nothing more.
    As a 1973 painting grad I was “allowed” to audit most sculpture classes. I still have pieces where I can feel my emtiinal attachment to the figure. Harold Tovish showed us transformation of varied materiaks into his compilation of self portrait busts! I remained moved by Edmonds joinery – but this show provides only sadness — I long for work that takes tumruecridjs in effort – not about sn object forcthree hours – more is needed – my 1972 viting shoes became a sculpturak piece in context – its missing here. Thsnks for picking up trash on the streets – civic pride award allowed, MFA? Not so sure.

  3. Thank you for offering insight on the experiences and lessons from an artist’s perspective. I appreciate the idea of giving students from all over the world access to some of the world’s best institutions.
