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 are following a strict set of guidelines that have been advised, reviewed and approved by Bobbie Bagley, Director of Public Health and Community Services of the City of Nashua.
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!
Nashua is the only city in the United States that hosts an annual international sculpture symposium. This year we celebrated our 13th Anniversary.
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.
