Chris Duncan, associate professor of visual arts, installed two new outdoor sculptures in May, for “Sculpture Now” at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge, Mass., and for the 5th annual Sculpture and Performance Exhibition, North Bennington, Vt. One of the pieces was developed during a Union fellowship at the Vermont Studio Center in April. Both works are on view through the summer. Duncan's 2001 concrete and steel piece, “Pirate Jenny,” has been on extended loan to the sculpture garden at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Museum of Art in Utica, which also exhibited “Nervous System,” a large charcoal and ink drawing, as part of their “New Acquisitions” exhibit this winter; the drawing is in the museum's permanent collection. Duncan was a panelist for “Installation vs. Object,” a public presentation on contemporary sculpture organized by Mary Murray, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Munson in January. He also exhibited work this term in “Drawing for Sculpture” at the Andrews Gallery at the College of William and Mary.
