Art as part of everyday living

Menu

 

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 🙂
