Community

Students and faculty who join the VCU Department of Sculpture + Extended Media will find themselves immersed in a community committed to establishing the best possible atmosphere for productive art making. A necessary and vital component of this is the inclusion of all voices. We celebrate differences in viewpoints, life experiences and cultural backgrounds with the goal of learning from each artist’s unique perspective. We thrive on lively debate, and continually question all assumptions within an atmosphere of mutual respect and support.

Being a comprehensive public university in an urban setting, VCU provides vast opportunities for exploration, exchange and collaboration outside of the department. Our students are encouraged to take advantage of all that the school and the city have to offer. For more information on the wide range of cultural resources offered both on and off-campus, please visit the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at VCUarts.
