Our faculty considers sculpture as an inclusive art form; the course of study for Sculpture Intermedia emphasizes traditional methods and processes as well as new media approaches to working with objects in three and four dimensions. Students work with skill sets in wood, metal, mold making and also with digital techniques such as video, sound, electronics and performance to create 3D and 4D objects. They also incorporate two dimensional elements through a variety of mediums such as using text, painting, and photography. Courses range from metal fabrication and wood shop techniques to environment/installation, video, kinetics, synthetic sculpture and conceptual practices.
Students interested in sculpture/intermedia also have the option of a sculpture/intermedia emphasis in the Art Studio BFA
Academic and Career Opportunities
The Department of Art and Art History offers students many chances to network and get involved: for example, Sculpture Club at the UofU is a student organization that host events and professional development opportunities for members. Students graduating with a Sculpture Intermedia Minor will have a diverse skill set and the ability to apply this to their chosen career path. Many employers in the creative sector look favorably at applicants who have strong fabrication and three-dimensional design skills. The Minor is open to all students at the University of Utah pursuing a degree.
