COMMENCE 2013 Highlights Student Public Sculpture Projects Across Campus

A look inside the Commence 2013 process with sculpture professor Jann Nunn and her students who have created public works across campus from May 2-11. (Video by Jean Wasp, edited by Sarah Dowling)


Beginning on May 2, 20 sculpture projects are on display throughout the Sonoma State University campus as part of COMMENCE 2013.

The public art exhibit features work by SSU sculpture students, who used various materials to bring their artistic visions to life. These materials range from plaster, wood, steel, clay, and rope to found objects and glass.

The sculptures are on display through Commencement on May 11. Students, faculty, staff and the local community are invited to attend an artists' reception and tour of the projects on May 7, from 4- 6 p.m. beginning at the Sculpture Courtyard.
