IRA HILL (BFA 1998, photography and sculpture) writes that he has been practicing sculpture ever since graduation. “Today I am preparing to depart for a Artist Fellowship at Salem Art Works, Salem NY.” He recently completed campus commissions for Valdosta State University and North Florida Community College in Madison, FL. In 2012 he was awarded Artist in Residence at the National Ornamental Metal Museum in Memphis. “My favorite UA art school memory was getting to meet Mel Chin. He is an amazing influence on my ideas. Still love Bama.” Hill’s work can be seen at irahillsculpture.com.[Sum13]
