Ample workspaces for assembly; project spaces dedicated to installation and performance; gallery spaces for student exhibitions; outdoor casting and large-scale fabrication capabilities; and private studios are provided.

Graduate studies in sculpture are enhanced by an extensive visiting artist, critics and curator program.
