SIUE’s sculpture on campus in its 16th year

Now in its 16th year, Sculpture on Campus, the annual three-day event hosted by the Department of Art and Design, will run from October 5-7 on the SIUE campus.
The event kicks off with a public lecture by juror and Brooklyn based artist Afruz Amighi at noon on Wednesday October 5 in room 1104 in the Art & Design West Building. Amighi holds an MFA from New York University and has exhibited her Islamic and Gothic inspired installations all over the world.
Amighi will be on campus for three days and work with 12 art students. They have spent the last four months designing, building and installing their outdoor sculptures throughout the SIUE campus. She will also judge the winners of the Sculpture on Campus competition in an awards ceremony (6pm) that follows the Sculpture Walk (4pm) on Friday October 7. Student winners are awarded prizes including a $1,000 first prize.
In addition, an exhibition titled “Sculpture on Campus: Revisited” will feature artwork by former Sculpture on Campus participants including past winners. Andy Magee’s Trump inspired mixed media work is sure to start conversations with the presidential election only weeks away.
Events are sponsored by SIUE & Sculptors at Wagner
All events are free and open to the public.
