TAMUCC’s newest member of the sculpture department, Professor Leticia Bajuyo, accompanied with an all-female group of sculpture students, traveled 18+ hours to attend the Mid-South Sculpture Alliance Conference: Knoxville 2018. The conference was held at The University of Tennessee- Knoxville campus, where Bajuyo received her MFA. She was invited to join the board for the MSA the previous year and is making efforts to connect sculptors of Texas to the group.
This year’s conference featured sculptors Chakaia Booker, Elizabeth Turk, and Mary Bates Neubauer, held numerous artist panel lectures, presentations, workshops, demonstrations, and also ventured off-campus to various art galleries. The 3-day conference explored both indoor and outdoor sculptures and installations, inspiring students and working artists alike.
