    Symposium Details and Conditions for Artists
    1 Location and Time
    The fourth Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium will take place for six weeks from
    approximately July 22 through August 31, 2012 (final dates are to be set). The fourth Schoodic
    International Sculpture Symposium will be held at the University of Maine on the Orono campus.
    2 The Goals of the Symposium:
    The 2012 Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium will be the fourth in a 10-year cycle of
    symposia. Our goal is to provide sculpture for public locations in Maine and to increase the
    public awareness of sculpture in this part of the world. Completed sculptures will be installed at
    public sites in Eastern Maine towns and cities, forming a growing Sculpture Trail that spans over
    120 miles (192 km).
    3 Organizers:
    The Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium is the largest public sculpture Symposium in
    the USA. The Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium is a non-profit organization, working
    in partnership with the University of Maine who is hosting the 2012 event on their campus. The
    project engages communities who will receive the finished pieces.
    4 The Invited artists will receive:
     Airfare, reimbursed up to $1500 USD with receipts.
     Housing
     Meals
     Ground Transportation provided to and from Maine airports, and during the symposium
    to community and symposium events.
     $5000 Honorarium
    Housing is located near the facility, a spacious and well equipped location. Since the housing
    has kitchens, artists may wish to cook and eat communally. The closest air terminal is Bangor
    International Airport, Maine (various carriers).
    The symposium will publish a catalogue of the Symposium and a trail map that shows the
    location of the installed sculptures. Information regarding the events of the Symposium will be
    promoted through various media sources such as the Internet, television and radio.
    5 The symposium provides:
     Compressed Air
     Electricity and Electric Cords
     Air Hoses
     Fork Lift (and other necessary heavy equipment for moving and positioning stone)
     Quarried granite blocks of various shapes and sizes not to exceed 18,000 lbs.
    PO Box 122 Steuben, Maine 04680 USA  Tel. (207) 263-6057 
    Sculptors should bring other tools as desired. Please check with the Symposium regarding the
    availability of specialized equipment.
    Stone will be supplied by the Symposium for use in the sculpture project. Both granite and
    basalt will be made available. The stone is quarried close to the Symposium site and there will
    be a good choice of blocks. Maine granites vary in texture and color; colors range from white
    through gray and black and also pinks and multi-colors. During the 19th century, the Maine’s
    coast was a major supplier of building stone, monument stone and paving block, and had
    dozens of operating quarries.
    6 The Artist Responsibility:
     To create an original design of a large scale granite sculpture for the selected
     To scale the design appropriate for a six-week sculpture project.

    8 Theme of the 2011 Symposium:
    The Symposium is not a themed event; however in achieving our objective to produce large
    scale granite sculptures throughout the coastal area of Maine, we encourage the artistic and
    cultural exchange between artists of varying backgrounds, using different sculpture styles. The
    Symposium is an opportunity for communities, schools, artists and members of the public to
    come together to celebrate the international art form and learn about our unique local heritage.
