The Sculpture Program is an open laboratory with strong connections to Houston’s vibrant art communities. Built upon a forty-year history of shaping the regional art community in Southeast Texas, we teach contemporary sculpture as an adaptable, intelligent practice that constantly seeks new forms and ideas. We do this by supporting the material- and labor-intensive aspects of making things designed to live in the physical world and maintaining multiple workshops across two buildings on campus, while simultaneously creating opportunities for our students to engage the more ephemeral and fantastical aspects of the expanded field with recent seminars on topics like Art & Magic and Dirt.
BFA in Sculpture
Advancing Into the Major (Block)
Sculpture BFA students create their own internship that is the equivalent of one academic course during their Senior year. The internship is an opportunity for students to get direct experience working professionally in an area of sculpture that interests them most. Most choose to work in a museum or gallery, as an artist’s studio assistant, and others develop their own uniquely tailored internships to support their professional interests.
