For Immediate Release
March 24, 2010

(Philadelphia, PA) Paul Hubbard, graduate program manager of the MFA in Studio Art, will travel to London April 7-9 with three BFA and two MFA students for the International Sculpture Center (ISC) Conference.

Hubbard is a fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors and serves on the executive board of ISC. He will present at the Conference on the topic of how contemporary sculpture has evolved.

Thanks to a special donor, Moore secured a gift for a scholarship for a BFA student to attend. Three BFA students were nominated by fine arts faculty: Laurel Patterson, Angeline Nesbit and Brit Brennan. They are pictured above, left to right, with Paul Hubbard, President Happy Fernandez and Scot Kaylor, chair of fine arts. An independent jury then made the final decision.

Congratulations to Laurel Patterson, who was named the recipient of the scholarship, and the other nominees.

Other students traveling to London include:

Jamie Moore, undergraduate student
Emma Pouncey, undergraduate student
Laura Petrovitch Cheney, graduate student
Kristin Osgood, graduate student

The ISC's 22nd International Sculpture Conference will explore and consider the potential of sculpture in the 21st century - to provide an opportunity to both celebrate its vitality and diversity, its capacity to challenge, and to examine its current position, function and production.

The International Sculpture Center (ISC) is a member-supported, nonprofit organization founded in 1960 to advance the creation and understanding of sculpture and its unique, vital contribution to society. For more information, visit http://www.sculpture.org
