Sculpture

The sculpture concentration at Montserrat reflects the varied practice of contemporary sculpture, and encourages a range of expression across media that could include mold making, carving, woodworking, welding, ceramics, kinetic art, fiber arts, digital processes, and installation. Additionally, each concentration enables students to pursue interests across campus to develop their own unique artistic voice and expertise.

Guided by Montserrat’s talented faculty, students acquire the essential skills and experience to effectively design, craft, exhibit, and communicate about their own sculptural work. Visiting artists, mentors, and arts professionals enrich students’ education, further their professional skill building, and form valuable connections with the greater arts community. 

“Montserrat has made me a stronger more self-assured person. There’s a lot of independence and responsibility handed to you here, and it’s a lot. But it’s made me more mature and has taught me things about being on my own that I could never ignore.”

Sculpture alumni work as professional artists, curators, preparators, fabricators, set designers, creative entrepreneurs, and educators. Graduates have found employment hand carving custom-made guitars, fabricating handmade automobiles, and designing and assembling internationally known pipe organs. The possibilities are boundless.
