Metal sculpture created directly by the artist's hand is the focus of a new exhibition by Sydney Skelton Simon, a PhD candidate in the Department of Art & Art History, whose proposal was selected in the fall. Featuring small-scale sculptures, photographs, and sound recordings, this exhibition explores modes of working with metal that depart from more traditional casting methods.
