Art on campus returns for third year in a row

“Springtime here at UFV sees the trees blossoming, students spread out on the green, and for the third time, sculptures set around Abbotsford campus. The class, “Sculpture and Extended Media II,” works alongside facilities staff to scout locations on campus, and then develop their artwork to interact with those spaces.”

Springtime here at UFV sees the trees blossoming, students spread out on the green, and for the third time, sculptures set around Abbotsford campus.

The project, which runs until April 12, is a means through which sculpture and extended media students exhibit their work. The class, “Sculpture and Extended Media II,” works alongside facilities staff to scout locations on campus, and then develop their artwork to interact with those spaces.

Each of the works is unique, with a large number of different materials being used by the class, from the metalwork in Jesse Klassen’s “Offering” to the bamboo sticks used by Peter Nicholson in his piece, “The formation of galaxies.”

Art on Campus serves to showcase the talents of UFV’s students especially when combined with sunshine, makes the Abbotsford campus much more strange and appealing as students prepare for finals.
