About The SculptureX Symposium:

The James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History, Wayne State University, will host SculptureX Symposium 2015: Value Added, with co-sponsorship by the Frostic School of Art, Western Michigan University, the Penny Stamps School of Art and Design, University of Michigan, and the Cranbrook Academy of Art. The symposium will take place October 9-10, on the campus of Wayne State University, with exhibitions on and off campus.

SculptureX is a teaching and networking resource and promotional platform formed to catalyze collaborations among teaching arts institutions in western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and western New York. It was founded in 2010 by faculty and administrators at two regional institutions in Ohio: The Sculpture Center (Ann Albano) and Cleveland Institute of Art (Saul Ostrow, Charles Tucker, Lane Cooper) – and – at two institutions in Pennsylvania: Edinboro University of Pennsylvania (Lisa Austin, Dietrich Wegner) and the Erie Art Museum (John Vanco). Today, Ann Albano and her staff at The Sculpture Center manage SculptureX, with assistance from both founding and participating institutions. The SculptureX Symposiums have been organized and funded by host institutions: Cleveland Institute of Art (2010, 2011, 2012), Columbus College of Art and Design (2013, 2014), and the James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History at Wayne State University (2015). http://sculpturex.art.wayne.edu/
