From the Chairman

ISC members, board, staff, and supporters have much to be proud of. We publish an award-winning magazine—Sculpture—and have recently published our first book—A Sculpture Reader (available for purchase directly from the ISC, at, or in bulk through our distributor, University of Washington Press; new and renewing Professional Level members will receive a complimentary copy). In June, we concluded a successful conference in Cincinnati, and our future conference schedule is taking shape and looks very exciting. And <>, the most important and most visited Internet resource for sculptors and sculpture, continues to expand. (Complete letter...)
