As many parts of the U.S. and others around the world continue to be sequestered indoors due to the coronavirus pandemic, we plan to take some time to celebrate the work of artists and their outdoor creations during International Sculpture Day on April 25, 2020. Developed by the International Sculpture Center, International Sculpture Day (or IS Day) is an annual celebration event held worldwide on the last Saturday in April to further the ISC’s mission of advancing the creation and understanding of sculpture and its unique, vital contribution to society.
Americans for the Arts’ Public Art Network will participate in IS Day by highlighting public artworks that are sculptural in nature and support health, well-being, and inclusivity in communities. Operating virtually, we will share images, videos, and other online sources on social media that celebrate public sculptures. We encourage our members and others to join the International Sculpture Center in celebrating IS Day by sharing your own favorite sculptures on April 25. Remember to tag @americans4arts on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and use the hashtag #ISDay.
Visit the International Sculpture Day website to learn more about the celebration and how you can participate.
