What better way to celebrate the first day of spring than by creating a snow sculpture? That’s what students in two of David A. Stabley’s art electives did Monday in front of the Bush Campus Center. Stabley, instructor of ceramics/wood sculpture, and students in Wood Sculpture and Ceramics II classes got out of the lab and into some creative exploration. Similar to other campus projects crafted by Stabley’s students (usually in fairer weather), their creation was inspired by the environmental art of famed British sculptor Andy Goldsworthy.
