SCULPTURE FOR ALL
Since the first SFA–Sculpture For All exhibition in 2014, thousands of visitors have enjoyed a wide variety of sculptures nestled throughout the SFA Gardens, including the Mast Arboretum and Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden on the beautiful Stephen F. Austin State University campus. Sculpture for All, a biennial outdoor exhibition and competition, is a joint partnership project that brings together faculty, staff and students from the SFA School of Art and the Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture. This endeavor seeks to expose SFA students and faculty members to art they might not otherwise see while bringing national recognition and publicity to SFA. Sculpture For All plays a vital part in fulfilling the university's mission of excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, creative work, and service by creating new learning opportunities, as well as aiding in the recruitment of both students and faculty members.
With national artists from Kansas to New Mexico and Texas artists from Houston to Throckmorton, Sculpture For All 2019-2021 is ready to impress! 2019-2021 juror, Robbie Barber is a sculptor as well as a professor of studio art at Baylor University Born in Williamston, North Carolina, and raised on a farm near the Roanoke River. Although Robbie has lived in Texas for several years, he maintains a strong connection with his roots and visits North Carolina every summer to conduct research. He joined the Baylor Art Department faculty in 2000.
The continued success of Sculpture For All would not be possible without all of our generous donors and amazing partners, and for that, we are most grateful. We hope you agree that Sculpture For All is an important building block in the cultural growth of the Nacogdoches community and will choose to support the project. With your help, art will continue to bloom throughout the SFA Gardens!
