Sculpture Saint John, the first New Brunswick International Sculpture Symposium was held in 2012 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 this year.
This symposium was a beginning but not an end. Look for us in 2014 as we continue to build on what we have begun toward the creation of an International Sculpture Trail between New Brunswick and Maine. When we encourage public art, we also encourage creativity and thoughtfulness and build a richer future for all of our citizens.
