The International Sculpture Center (ISC) was founded over 25 years ago as a conference organization. Although we have grown into a leading membership arts organization, as well as publisher of the internationally acclaimed, Sculpture magazine, conferences remain a primary focus at the ISC. Today, ISC conferences are known as events which draw enthusiastic and dedicated attendees who support the arts, and Sculpture in particular. Attendees include artists, educators, arts administrators, museum directors, collectors, patrons, and students, among others. They come to network with one another and go back to work or school with new ideas or solutions which help promote a supportive environment for sculpture and sculptors. We invite you to join us at an upcoming event! For information on Conferences and Symposiums, please contact: Dawn Molignano at or 609.689.1051 ext. 308.
