Sculpture Saint John 2012 was the first New Brunswick International Sculpture Symposium and by all accounts was a huge success.
Over 35,000 visitors watched as six international artists carved 120 tons of New Brunswick granite. People became enthralled by the process of creating public art. Everyone enjoyed interacting with the artists and interns helping to make this the largest arts event in New Brunswick.
Our second symposium will be held August- September 2014. We are excited about our new location on Water Street and anticipate over 50,000 people will attend this year. We have increased the number of artists to eight and significantly expanded the education program during the event.
Recently we launched a map of the International Sculpture trail we are creating between Maine and New Brunswick and have been welcoming many new and returning sponsors. So, keep watching as we make announcements, get involved by signing up to be a volunteer, contact us about making a donation or get involved in the committees working in the partner communities.
When we encourage public art, we also encourage creativity and thoughtfulness and build a richer future for all of our citizens.

Do you enjoy cooking healthy, nutritious and filling meals in large quantities? Would you like to meet the sculptors and interns on-site? We are looking for volunteers to host a lunch for twenty-four hungry sculptors, interns and site personnel for one lunch. You supply all the food and deliver a cooked meal to the Sculpture Symposium site. We provide the utensils and sculptors and interns with big appetites. The Sculpture Symposium takes place between August 7th and September 20th and we are looking for volunteers to provide meals seven days a week during this time frame. If you are interested in hosting a lunch, please contact Liane and Suzanne and let us know what dates would work best for you. We look forward to hearing from you.
