Hey, where'd that come from? Perched between the Curtis L. Ivey Science Center and the Susan Cleveland Colgate Library/Learning Center, “Whitebird” was donated to the college by renowned author, artist and former Colby-Sawyer faculty member Tomie dePaola. In 1987, dePaola commissioned figurative sculptor Judith Brown to create the piece, which he donated to the college in celebration of its new Library/Learning Center. #colbysawyer #colbysawyerlibrary

Similar to the human form, sculpture is a three-dimensional embodiment of thoughts and ideas. Often used for announcement, declaration of honor or ritual purposes, sculpture has the power to motivate by connecting the analytical mind with emotions. Create your own visual proclamation with our BFA concentration in sculpture.
Start by developing your understanding of three-dimensional ideation and object construction, including inner and outer space requirements, environment, and scale. Progress by learning the importance of armature building, the absolutes of gravity and how to build expressional works of art through additive/subtractive processes including clay modeling, welding steel, wood construction, mixed media, carved stone or wood, and installation-based art.
The Gladys Greenbaum Meyers Juried Student Art Exhibition, the college's largest art annual exhibition, draws an impressive audience from the college community and the general public. The honor of being selected to show in the juried exhibition adds esteem and value to your academic accomplishments and your professional portfolio. In addition to awards for Best in Show, outstanding artists are also selected for scholarships and commissioned pieces.
The annual Senior Art Exhibition showcases the best work of all graduating art majors. The exhibition demonstrates the growth, skill and professionalism developed while studying at Colby-Sawyer. Awards are presented to artists whose works best reflect diversity of media, techniques, influences and experiences.
