Sculptures and the value of public art

sculpture augFor those of you who have been following the Sculpture Symposium taking place on the Coast Guard site you might be interested to see some of the works that have been made over the years at the Scoodic Sculpture Symposium that make up the Maine Sculpture Trail. Here’s where to see what has been made and placed around Maine: http://schoodicsculpture.org/tour/

You may also be interested in this piece from Forbes.com where, considering the value of public art in New York City, the author posits:

“But we don't just need sculpture gardens and curved steel structures for the money--we need public art because it improves our quality of life, because it makes us stop and open our eyes”


Back to the local aspect, you can meet the sculptors working in Saint John for the symposium at the Arts Centre tomorrow (August 29, 2012) at 7pm. More details:
