The sculpture program at the University of Minnesota, Morris provides tools and equipment for working with wood, metal, plaster, clay, and mixed media. Faculty are active professional artists representing a breadth of working methodologies ranging from traditional to conceptual. Students are encouraged to pursue cross-disciplinary work with other media such as ceramics, book arts, and painting.
Students pursing work in sculpture should be sure to take advantage of:
- Separate work spaces accommodating tabletop and large-scale work
- Tool room, metal fabricating and welding area, woodworking area, and overhead crane
- Small classes allowing designated work space in the studio
- Spacious campus grounds for outdoor work and display
- The sculpture studio also houses a large Delta style 3D printer, a CNC router, and two laser cutters. Students in sculpture courses will learn and have access to these machines. The Briggs library also houses a professional grade Stratasys UPRINT SE 3D printer. Students will learn how to model and 3D print their own models in Sculpture 1 and subsequent Sculpture courses.
