A public art collection in Downeast Maine
Five sculpture Symposia from 2007 to 2014 resulted in a world class collection of large granite works of art that make up the new Sculpture Trail of Maine. The Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium was an artist in residency program that gave 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 symposia provided a stipend, materials and technical support to each artist, in a communal working space open to the public. The finished works are now part of an outdoor collection that spreads throughout the region. The project was supported through donations from the local communities, general fundraising, grants, and in kind support.
The fifth and last Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium concluded in 2014. To view an interactive map of all thirty-four sculptures navigate the map below. View our gallery page with locations and artist information.
