Department Head


Cassandra Schifano graduated from the University of Notre Dame, with her Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a double major in Ceramics & Fiber Arts. Her own art practice focuses on textile processes as a sculptural medium and using art-making as a way to explore intergenerational trauma.
