Carolyn Henne

Carolyn Henne is a sculptor, the Chair of FSU’s Department of Art. As the Chair, she oversees an exciting studio art department where the focus is on producing technologically savvy artists and designers who are conscientious actors with good hands. Students graduate with analytical and critical skills, hand and web skills, design and collaborative skills and a real conviction and belief in what they do and have to offer. She also serves as Director of the Facility for Arts Research (FAR) and Associate Dean for the College of Fine Arts. FAR supports rigorous investigation and inquiry across artistic media and disciplines with a focus on technological innovation.

Henne’s sculpture is largely informed by anatomical studies. Her work ranges from large, complex interactive installations to more straightforward, discrete objects. “Suspended Self Portrait”, is in the permanent collection at the National Museum of Health and Medicine and was featured in the NIH’s exhibition, Dream Anatomy.
