Art as part of everyday living



Due to the current Covid-19 health crisis, we have decided to reschedule our 2020 Sculpture Symposium.  We greatly value the health and well-being of our Board, Sculptors, and our Community and are following all recommendations from public health officials.  The new dates for our event will be Thursday, August 20 through Saturday, September 12, 2020.

We appreciate your understanding.  Please know that during this challenging time, we will continue to serve our mission of enriching the quality of life in Nashua with amazing sculptures for all to see, touch and enjoy.

Now, more than ever, we need the arts and artists.  The arts can bring us to a different place and reveal the beauty all around us.  The arts bring us joy and allow us to share our struggles.  We will continue to share cultural experiences and opportunities that we hope will help to bring you joy and happiness.  We wish you good health!  Be well everyone 🙂

The Nashua International Sculpture Symposium has enjoyed the support of many local restaurants.

Much of what we do could not happen without their support.  Now, it is our turn to support them as they reopen and continue to provide the food we enjoy – and miss!

Take-out and curbside pick-up is available at most restaurants.  You can also show your support by purchasing gift cards.

Please share this with your family and friends.

13th anniversary

Nashua is the only city in the United States that hosts an annual international sculpture symposium.  This year we celebrated our 13th Anniversary.

closing ceremony

The International Sculpture Symposium is a community project.  Except for the artists’ stipends and raw materials, the community generously donates all other needs for a successful event.


Jina Lee first started working with stone in 2003 while studying Korean traditional sculpture in South Korea. Using natural forms as a basis for her sculptures, Jina focuses on carving simplified organic shapes into stone.


Jorg Van Daele started his sculpting education with sculptor Emiel Uyterhoeven in 1989. His artwork is throughout the world in privately owned and in public places, including Canada, Iran, Spain, Germany, Egypt, New Zealand, and Uzbekistan.


Born in Washington, D.C., Taylor Apostol spent her formative years living in Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, and the suburbs of Philadelphia. She studied marble carving in Florence and Carrara, Italy, and has attended residencies at The Studios at MASS MoCA and Vermont Studio Center.

Attend Events

The opening for 2020 will be on Thursday, August 20th, 2020 from 5:30-8 PM at Hunt Community on the corner of Allds and Main Streets, Nashua NH.
