Background: Sawyer is a professor of sculpture and studio art in the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin. Sawyer was part of the collaborative team, headed by San Francisco landscape design firm Hargreaves Associates, to design a new part in downtown Houston called Discovery Green. Sawyer created four site-specific works for the park that integrate art and architecture.
All of the works in the Courtyard Gallery exhibitions are for sale through the gift shop. The Courtyard Gallery is the result of a collaborative effort between the Office of the Vice President for Employee and Campus Services and the College of Fine Arts. There will be three faculty and alumni exhibitions a year in this space curated by Creative Research Lab Gallery Director Jade Walker.
