The Covid-19 pandemic has drastically changed artists’ ways of working, thinking, and communicating in the past few months. In order to make sense of this as a community, the Mid-South Sculpture Alliance Board of Directors invites you to attend a special online series of panel discussions throughout 2021. Within this series, we will present monthly live broadcasts featuring professionals, educators, our members, and more. These panels will cover an array of topics that explore and discuss current issues within the field of contemporary sculpture. The panel discussions will be live and available free to the public as well as archived for further viewing after the live event.
The fifth of this series, “The Impact of Winning” was a dialogue between past MSA Scholarship winners, which illustrated how that award and other awards have impacted their careers. The panel will lasted one hour, 45 minutes with a 15-minute live question and answer section.

Professionals shared their experience as current professors and gave our audience innovative ideas on how to navigate teaching sculpture online. MFA student, Nyasha Madamobe joined the panel and provided a student perspective on the successes and challenges of learning sculpture online.
