Schachner’s students present Sculpture Walk at Armstrong Campus
Students in Professor Casey Schachner’s 3D Art & Design Foundations course created artworks featured in the first Sculpture Walk event that will be displayed in the International Gardens on the Georgia Southern University Armstrong campus from Oct. 23-28. In this collection of works, students were challenged to use a two-dimensional square piece of aluminum to create a three-dimensional object. This was achieved through cutting the square into multiple facets that cannot be removed but instead folded and shaped in multiple directions creating “sculpture in the round.” Each aluminum sculpture has been powder-coated in a vibrant color to help preserve the sculpture.
Viewers can bid on the sculptures through the Handbid app. Auction proceeds will go to the Betty Foy Sanders Art Student Travel Fund, which helps find field trips, professional conferences, study abroad programs and other educational programs for the students in the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art. Instructions on how to participate in the auction and more information about the exhibit are available on the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art website.
