Steve Rossi is an interdisciplinary artist and the sculpture program head at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
Among other topics, we talk about Steve’s time at the Tallix art foundry in Beacon, a fine art metal fabrication business that was one of this city’s last connections to its industrial past before it merged with Polich Art Works and moved away in 2006.
Steve established the scuplture program at St. Joseph’s with the goal of building hooks into other departments. And Steve has brought digital fabrication technologies like 3D printing, laser cutting, and digital rendering into the curriculum there.
