USF SculptureWalk
Letter From the President

Welcome to USF SculptureWalk. The University of Sioux Falls celebrates the arts as a central component to its liberal arts education. The tradition of the liberal arts remains a foundational anchor in our identity as a university, as we strive to foster an environment that places an emphasis on the development of the whole person.

We believe in the value of cultivating a knowledge and appreciation for the visual and performing arts by encouraging our students to participate in our programs such as art, music and theatre. Just like these programs, the USF SculptureWalk provides an opportunity to let the arts transform you. So join us and take a visual journey through campus!

Overcoming
1

Overcoming

by Serge Mozhnenvsky

This sculpture represents the will of overcoming the obstacles in one’s life

Cascade

Cascade

by David Skora

I wanted to create a sense of humor in this piece. I am interested in creating sculptures that become a source of contemplation as well as inspiration to those who view it.

Tranquil Composure

Tranquil Composure

by Gregory Mendez

A modern interpretation of Athena, a Greek Goddess from ancient Greek mythology.

White Step
4

White Step

by Harold Linke

Each new adventure starts with a blank page, a clean slate, and deep breath. The joy of a first step is one that is full of anticipation and joy. White Step is ready to take the plunge, make a move, and start into the grand
adventure of life.

Synchronous

Synchronous

by Tim James & Aidan Demarais

This sculpture represents the merging of efforts between angular, round, smooth and textured surfaces: ultimately depicting the ever-elusive state of harmony. Gears, sprockets and pulleys were compiled and welded together to form the sphere.

Manly Springs

Manly Springs

by Dana Parlier

Up there precariously bouncing around, Manly Springs strives to gain control and maintain balance. But as you can see, he never quite gets there, which means he will keep trying forever.

African Pieta

African Pieta

by Josie Campbell Dellenbaugh

The Christian concept of a Pieta, Mary grieving over the body of her dead son, Christ, can become a universal construct for this particular and devastating type of grief. I particularly chose not to be too graphic about the child, merely suggesting the body in a wrapped bundle.

Raven’s Voyage

Raven’s Voyage

by Martha Pettigrew

Traditional totem figures, and depicted them in a contemporary manner.

Ascending Perspectives

Ascending Perspectives

by Craig Snyder

Sky and water are inextricably linked. Swirls of roots and currents connect us to the earth.

Foregather

Foregather

by Susan Quinlan

The assembly is a convergence of cultures in our shrinking world. The pieces are just like us, the whole is made up of parts. Each of us is a multifaceted compilation of smaller fragments of our thoughts, experiences and aspirations.

Angel in the Art Nouveau

Angel in the Art Nouveau

by Ben Hammond

One of my objectives was to sculpt an engaging piece of sculpture that was captivating from all angles. A piece with fluid movement and a strong exaggerated line much like the artists of the Art Nouveau period.
