Welcome to Sculpture
The Sculpture Program at the University of Tennessee provides an environment that encourages students to develop as artists and prepares them for professional opportunities in the field of contemporary sculpture. We are committed to cultivating an open-minded and diverse experience for students, while maintaining high standards for personal artistic achievement.
The strength of our program is evident in the balance of technical and conceptual practices that are at the core of our curriculum. Embracing the interdisciplinary nature of sculpture, faculty members emphasize an object-based approach to creating sculpture in addition to fostering exploration of new media, performance, and installation.
The sculpture facility is composed of well-equipped studios including an indoor foundry, outdoor work area and a large metal shop, maintained by a full-time technician. Our facility also serves as an important resource for students pursuing off-campus sculpture and public art projects in the local and regional community.
