International Sculpture Trail

Sculpture Saint John continues the legacy of creating contemporary sculptures from local granite by international artists.  The Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium held its first event at the Acadia National Park on the Schoodic Peninsula in 2007, resulting in seven sculptures placed along coastal towns in Maine and beginning a new trail system.  The thirty four resulting sculptures along the Maine trail continues with the addition of the Canadian works of art.  Holding its first Symposium in 2012, Sculpture Saint John has held two biennial events.  The Canadian sculpture trail will result in over thirty five large-scale sculptures by 2020.  Combined, the two trails make up a unique international art exhibition of large scale granite works of art by world-renowned artists.   We think of the tour as Geo Sculpting. Enjoy getting to know our cities, towns and villages while finding unique sculptures that add to the culture that connects these communities through public art.
