2014 Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium
The fifth Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium will be held from August 3 to September 14, 2014 on the ball field next to the US Bells foundry on Route 186, Prospect Harbor, Maine.
SISS is proud to partner with the following seven participating communities:
Surry, Lubec, Calais, Harrington, Jonesport, Bucksport and Castine.
Four Symposia have taken place, resulting in 27 sculptures that make up the new Sculpture Trail of Maine. 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.
