Projects by six Sam Fox School students will be featured in the 2011 University City Sculpture Series, which opens April 3 at Centennial Commons' Heman Park.
Started in 1986, the annual Sculpture Series provides students an opportunity to propose and execute site-specific works of public art for temporary installation in downtown University City.
The University City Municipal Commission on Arts and Letters selected the following students' projects for inclusion in this year's installment of the series:
Cathryn Garcia-Menocal, Earth Composition
Brianna Jordan, Living Room
Anna Roseberry, Collections
Erica Sandrock, Yours, Mine, Ours
Madison Sembler, Non Park
Jessica Star, Open Enso
More than 200 students, 17 professors, 4 deans, 2 chancellors, 60 commission members, and 2 mayors have collaborated on the Sculpture Series since its inception. Projects have been funded by a variety sources, including the City of University City, the Municipal Commission on Arts and Letters, and the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission.
Through participation in the Sculpture Series, students gain valuable hands-on experience with project planning. They choose locations, estimate costs, and design models for their proposed projects, and then make professional presentations before the city's Commission on Arts and Letters.
