Master Sculptor Program

The Wallace Master Sculpture Program is supported by a generous gift from Martha Wallace Pellett. Master Sculptor Program Sculptors-in-Residence demonstrate the sculpture process to the visiting public, work on pieces they have in process, give lectures on their work, and teach workshops on a variety of subjects. Since 1999, Master Sculptors have been selected by invitation each year and serve to further advance Brookgreen’s relationship with working sculptors.
