Sculpture’s New World

The Greeks took 10 years to sculpt Discobolus. Michelangelo needed three to build the statue of David. The Statue of Liberty required nine. Today, they could have rendered the things, then pressed “print,” thanks to free-form technology like Rapid Prototype Printing, 3D Scanning and Digital Sculpture. It’s a hot button topic in the world of art-meets-science, and you can check out the work of locals who use that new technology today at the One Arts Plaza (1722 Routh St.). Wednesday is the show’s last day, so pop in to see Shawn Smith’s goat head and Shelle Carrig’s book sculptures, among others. Admission is free.
