International Sculpture Center
Art Party
NYC, October 27 - 29th

The International Sculpture Center hosted the ISC Art Party in New York City October 27-29, 2011. ISC members, artists and patrons of the arts attended this unique event to help raise funds to benefit the programs and publications of the ISC.

An exclusive reception at Haunch of Venison featured a catalogued art sale with works by renowned artists including James Surls, William King, Manuel Neri and many more. Guests also enjoyed cocktails and live musical entertainment by Kevin Williams.

While the cocktail reception was a fantastic event, the ISC Art Party was not just a cocktail reception. The event also boasted three days of programming, including artist/curator led tours of studios and galleries throughout Brooklyn, Long Island City and SoHo, which provided attendees with opportunities to ask questions, network, and get an intimate look at the creative process of some of today's successful sculptors.

Special thanks to artists and organizations who generously donated time and space for the events: Haunch of Venison, Michele Oka Doner, Judith Shea, Boaz Vaadia, Ursula von Rydingsvard, SculptureCenter and Causey Contemporary Gallery.

We would also like to thank all the artists who donated work to be sold in support of the ISC. Artwork is still available and can be viewed online at

All proceeds from the ISC Art Party and art sale help support the educational programs and publications of the International Sculpture Center
