Florida International University and The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum sponsored the 2013 International Sculpture Symposium from December 1-4, 2013.
The first National Sculpture Conference was held in 1960 by sculptor and educator Elden Tefft at the University of Kansas. From this conference sprang the International Sculpture Center (ISC), as a nonprofit organization that celebrates the medium of sculpture. The aim of the International Sculpture Center is to bring together enthusiasts of the medium, as well as educate on sculpture. This year’s International Sculpture Symposium will include participants from as far as Italy, Germany, Nigeria and Estonia. It will be a gathering of artists, curators, collectors, and devotees.
The 2013 International Sculpture Symposium in Miami, Florida will run from December 1-4, 2013. The Symposium’s keynote will occur at Florida International University, and can be attended by FIU students who present their student ID.
An Iron Pour occurred outside of FIU’s W-01 (sculpture studio) building, with the help of College of Architecture + The Arts students and alumni, on Tuesday, December 3rd at 1:30PM.
