SAIC’s Sculpture department offers one of the largest, most comprehensive, and diverse programs of its kind in the country.

The Sculpture department is situated at the defining edge of contemporary practice and discourse. We practice sculpture at its broadest level of meaning.

Twentieth-century art practice opened up the spaces and materials of sculpture to those of the “real world,” and this breadth of vision and experience is reflected in the development of the curriculum and resources, which encompass every material imaginable, leading to the expression of ideas in space. We are committed on levels both international and deeply local to the development of an economically and culturally diverse context for the study of sculpture and with increased attentiveness to environmental responsibility in art-making.
