Welcome

The University of Sioux Falls is grounded in the liberal arts tradition, which values the development of students’ intellectual, analytical and creative capacities. We seek to cultivate students’ knowledge and appreciation of the visual and performing arts.

We encourage students to engage in the arts by participating in our programs in art, music and theatre and by experiencing permanent exhibits such as USF SculptureWalk. So enjoy! Allow your spirit to be rejuvenated and your senses to be awakened as you take in the thoughtprovoking sculptures and absorb the colors of campus.

Ra

Ra

by Patricia Vader

Ra, the Egyptian sun god, was inspired by what I found in my inventory of steel wheels and hubs.

Water Cobblestones

Water Cobblestones

by Brian McCormick

Swimming among the lily pads as a boy was an everyday occurrence during the summer at my parent’s cabin in Northern Minnesota. We all have seen them on the water – they look like cobblestones. I loved the thought of standing beneath the lily pads to catch a glimpse from below.

Pointing at the moon

Pointing at the moon

by Steven Maeck

The aesthetic intent of my work is not to create “junkyard art,” but to take industrial artifacts and alter or recombine them in such a manner as to create work that is not only resonant and original but also manifests the aura of having been created.

Endless Summer

Endless Summer

by Gregory Johnson

The figure moves with the season.

Beetle the Bear

Beetle the Bear

by Cedar Mueller

It will come as no surprise that I love animals. I love the different personality of each animal. When I have completed a sculpture, I know I’ve done a good job when it has its “personality,” and people can connect with it. Beetle the Bear is made from the hood of an old Volkswagen Beetle and other found parts. Don’t forget to look for the VW insignia on his tail!

Echo

Echo

by Osamede Obazee

The metrical wave of sound, forms and space echo through the reflection of mind to reality.

Harp

Harp

by Crysten Nesseth

Harp of strings, blown by the wind, reverberates a shivering hum. A hallow tree, beat with broken branches, pulsates like a drum. The din of steel, a wasted reprise, from industry, music will come.

Seahorse

Seahorse

by Crysten Nesseth

Waves whisper desires for discovery, probing life for the glimmer of ethereal beings. Here, seemingly so insignificant with tendrils clinging to minute architecture, a silhouette reminiscent of my terrestrial companions. Weightless, just breathing. I pursue balance in the presence of such wonder.

Flight

Flight

by Lance Carleton

You might say this piece gained wings and became this convoy of birds in flight.

Monumental Professor

Monumental Professor

by Gregory Johnson

In this case, an Owl was selected in a lyrical pose on top of stack of books with his reading glasses. This is not a common sight, but I thought it was humorous, simple and elegant.

Elation

She did it!
