Studio experience with critical and theoretical dialogue.
The Sculpture program at SUNY New Paltz provides students with a broad foundation of technical, conceptual, critical, and professional skills to facilitate the execution of their ideas and careers. The Sculpture faculty, Associate Professor Steven Bradford and Associate Professor Emily Puthoff, encourage an interdisciplinary approach and the Sculpture curriculum reflects the expansive breadth of media, techniques, content and contexts inherent within contemporary sculpture practice. Courses are offered in installation, site-specific and situational sculpture, time-based media, kinetics and electronics, and sound, as well as traditional sculpture processes such as casting, welding/metal fabrication, and material investigations. Students have ample opportunity to further their professional skills and research with internships and fieldwork projects within the abundant local art resources both in the Hudson Valley and nearby New York City.
