From the ISC Executive Director

Because we are the International Sculpture Center, and because part of our mission is to create and build dialogues between sculptors, I was invited to Mexico City in late January to visit studios and learn about what is taking place with sculptors and sculpture programs there. While this was a brief trip, it was an important step to begin the process of opening up connections with artists outside the U.S.

As you may know, Mexico City is one of the largest urban centers in the world, and perhaps the only way to comprehend its size is to know that in the four days of my visit we covered some 500 miles by taxi. For those of you who might want to visit, it is a city not to be missed: without sounding too naïve, I discovered a culture rich in its contemporary energies with deep historic roots. Artists there make a great effort to balance the past and the immediate present in their works.
