Visitors, faculty, staff, and students at Alfred State College's School of Applied Technology are greeted each day by a sculpture by Glenn Zweygardt, professor of sculpture emeritus, NYS College of Ceramics School of Art and Design. The large-scale, mixed media piece is on loan from the artist as part of a beautification initiative at the Wellsville campus.
Zweygardt served the College of Ceramics for 38 years. A faculty member since 1969, Zweygardt is nationally acclaimed for his large-scale, mixed-media sculptures. In addition to his teaching, Zweygardt works independently in his own studio. He has shown works in many selected solo exhibits and collected many awards and honors. His pieces are also contained in many permanent collections.
