On September 28 & 29, 2018, Bowling Green State University, University of Toledo, Contemporary Art Toledo, Owens Community College, and the Toledo Museum of Art present SculptureX, an annual regional symposium convened by the teaching arts institutions in western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and western New York.

SculptureX 2018: Igniting Change 

The idea of social practice within and through art is evolving, sometimes ephemeral, and often experiential. Its ideological concern with sociopolitical issues manifests in such expressions as community engagement, performative installations, political encounters and environmental activities. Social practice artworks have long been a powerful means of challenging - and changing - existing norms and conditions.

Now entering its ninth year, SculptureX (i.e. sculpture exchange) is an annual regional symposium convened by the teaching arts institutions in western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and western New York. As a teaching and networking resource, SculptureX aims to promote collaboration among art teaching institutions of our region and to increase the regional and national appreciation of our visual arts programs of sculpture in its broadest meaning. At the same time, SculptureX encourages and fosters the intellectual pursuit of compassionate thinking, discovering new forms and definitions of visual communication and understanding.

To help defray costs, there is a $15 charge to attend the 2-day symposium and any or all of its events. The price is $10 for students.
