Webster Hosts 'Holding Cognition' Reception Today

May 02, 2017

Webster will host a public "Holding Cognition" reception today, 2-3 p.m., in the Library's main lobby, showcasing bronze works by sculpture students currently attending Webster University enrolled in the Art program. While bronze casting has been practiced for over four thousand years for practical and artistic purposes, it is still a relevant and evolving art form today. Students are learning to work with the lost-wax process, plaster-sand casting, and pouring bronze.
