Founded in 1991 by Gwen Frostic School of Art Professor Philip Vander Weg and endorsed by former President Deither Haenicke, Western Michigan University’s Sculpture Tour has featured more than 100 notable artists, including Roxy Paine, Jun Kaneko, Tom Otterness, Patrick Dougherty, Mari Shields, Robert Stackhouse, and David Henderson, among scores of others. Comprised of large-scale exterior sculptures installed across campus, Sculpture Tour continues to be funded by the Office of the President today. Sculptures across campus represent varied conceptual, technical, and stylistic approaches. Typical loan periods span between one and three years and numerous sculptures have involved student and community participation. Sculpture Tour operates under the auspices of the Gwen Frostic School of Art and is administered by the Richmond Center for Visual Arts.
