About Cliff Tresner:

Always active in the visual arts, Tresner was invited to serve on the Louisiana Division of the Arts and the Arkansas Arts Council fellowship panels to award individual visual artists fellowship during the summer of 2008. During this time, he applied for, and was recently awarded, a Career Advancement Grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts in Baton Rouge.

Tresner invites the public to visit the ULM Campus Sculpture Garden, located on Mitchell Street, to view the new works on display by artists from around the nation and the adjacent Student Sculpture Garden which displays works accomplished by ULM Division of Art students.

These works are funded through the Campus Activities Board, the Northeast Louisiana Division of the Arts, and from donations provided by Sols Pipe and Steel.
