Call to Artists for the 2014 Symposium
The Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium issues call to Artists. The 2014 SISS is to be held in Prospect Harbor, Maine, beginning in August through the second week of September 2014. View Call to Artists.
The Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium is an artist in residency program that gives sculptors from Maine and around the world the chance to focus on a single piece of public art created in Maine granite. The six-week symposium provides a stipend, materials and technical support to each artist, in a communal working space open to the public. The finished works are part of a collection that spreads throughout the region. The project is supported through donations from the local communities, general fundraising, grants, and in kind support.
Four Symposium have taken place, resulting in 27 sculptures that make up the new Sculpture Trail of Maine. See images from the 2012 event. The next Symposium will be held in Prospect Harbor, Maine in August of 2014. Communities participating are: Surry, Lubec, Calais, Harrington, Jonesport, Bucksport and Castine.
