Read an article about the exhibition.

The most often asked question to the University of Notre Dame studio faculty is, “What do graduates of your program do for a living?”

ND Alumni: Sculptors and Professors features the work of 21 sculptors— all alumni of the University of Notre Dame—who are both practicing professional artists and faculty members of institutions of higher education.

The South Bend Museum of Art; the University of Notre Dame Department of Art, Art History and Design; and the Snite Museum of Art have jointly organized this exhibition, which is installed in the galleries of both the SBMA and Snite Museum.

An exciting variety of sculptural forms are featured, including figuration, abstraction, installation art, photography, painting and earth works. Materials are far-reaching, ranging from the traditional (bronze, steel and ceramics) to the unexpected (paper, bird feathers and drywall). This variety showcases contemporary sculptural practices and the exciting strategies that sculptors are utilizing to address themes and issues through three-dimensional forms.

ND Alumni: Sculptors and Professors will be supplemented with a full day symposium on Saturday, September 20, 2014 featuring panel discussions and presentations by participating artists, as well as keynote addresses by art historian and author, Judith Collins and acclaimed international sculptor Tony Cragg.

Join us at the SBMA the evening of Friday, September 19, 2014 for a reception and gallery talks by many of the artists whose work in on view in our galleries.

A printed catalog for the exhibition as well as a dedicated web site will extend the life of the exhibition well past its closing date.
