     ASU will present Friday, Oct. 26, the Salmon Sculpture Symposium on campus in the Eldon Black Recital Hall in the Carr Education-Fine Arts Building.

     "I heard about this event a while back, and I have been looking forward to it ever since," said student Zack Weber said. "I love art and appreciate the hard work that goes into it."

     The Symposium will feature artists Bill Molthen, a metal works and graphics artist from Austin, Texas, Jesus Morales and competition juror, Jed Morse, curator of the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas.  

     A reception will be held throughout the day in the Art Gallery, room 193 where Molthen's gallery is on display until  Nov. 2.

     The Symposium will be split into two separate parts. The morning panel will feature Stephen Daly, chair of the Texas Sculpture Group, and Erin Vaden, public art manager for the Texas Tech University System.  

     The afternoon session will feature Morse,  Morales, and will later be joined by Daly and Vaden, according the symposium press release.

     "Words cannot say how astounded I am for the Salmon Sculpture Symposium," student Alexa Williams said.

     The Salmon Sculpture Symposium will be presented by the Sculpture Network of Texas in collaboration with San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, the First Annual Salmon Sculpture Competition, Angelo State University's Department of Art and Music and Texas Tech University's School of Art.
