Sculpture school ranked No. 1 in US

What”s it like to be No.1? Just ask the students and faculty in the School of the Arts sculpture department.

For several years U.S. News and World Report magazine has ranked VCU”s (Virginia Commonwealth University”s) graduate school for sculpture as the No. 1 public and private school in the country. The latest ratings ranked Yale University second and the Art Institute of Chicago as third.

Richard Toscan, dean of the arts school, said the sculpture”s graduate program stands apart from other sculpture programs because the faculty pays a lot of attention to how their graduates make the transition to the professional art world.

“Enrollment is always close to capacity,” Toscan said. “Applications for the graduate program have gone way up and have gotten very competitive.”

Nancy Strange, the communications director for the arts school, said 16 students now study in VCU”s undergraduate sculpture program.

Each year nearly 170 people apply for admission to the sculpture program, but only three to six spaces are available.

U.S. News and World Report also gave VCU”s graduate arts school an overall ranking of No. 1 among other public, but not private, arts schools in the nation. The Rhode Island School of Design, the Art Institute of Chicago and Yale University ranked No.1 for private graduate arts schools.

Although the undergraduate program isn”t ranked, Strange said the students are taught by the same faculty and receive the same resources and opportunities. Studios are the only resource the students don”t share.
