Charlotte Colby Danly Sculpture Chair; Director of Sculpture
Chad Fisher is a fine art sculptor who has vertically integrated his process in order to control the quality and the poetry of the final creation. Through his studio/foundry, Fisher Sculpture LLC, which he operates with his father and wife, he has created more than 25 public sculptures, including fine art bronzes for the Chicago Bears Football Club, Philadelphia 76ers, Oklahoma University, Philadelphia Flyers, the NFL Hall of Fame, the Union League of Philadelphia, the Special Forces Charitable Trust, and the Philadelphia Vietnam Memorial. Fisher studied at Syracuse University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, before receiving his MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He has also studied at the New York Academy of Art, the Janus Collaborative, the Schuylkill Academy of Fine Arts, and the Barnstone Studios, among other institutions, and has apprenticed with several notable sculptors, including Stephen Perkins, Stuart Mark Feldman, and, most influentially, Gary Weisman. Throughout these educational opportunities, Fisher has utilized classical sculptural methods to develop and master his craft.
