An International Sculpture Symposium in New Zealand, new opportunities to network and learn through ISConnects and continuing support of young sculptors. These are a few of the many examples of how your financial support for the International Sculpture Center impacts the world of sculpture. The fact that our annual appeal arrives at the approach of the holiday season is not a coincidence. Certainly the generosity that you have expressed in recent years suggests that our timing is good as we begin mailing our annual requests for support of the ISC.
We thank you for your support. And while we greatly appreciate your gifts and donations, remember that you also support the sculpture community when you complete one of our surveys, attend an ISC-sponsored event, or provide feedback to our staff and Board members. More details about the impact of the ISC in 2013 can be found on page 80 of this issue.
I would also like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank our outgoing Board members. David Handley, founding director of Sculpture by the Sea, served on the International Affairs committee and worked to strengthen the ISCís international exchange. Mary Ellen Scherl is an artist who joined the Board in 2010 and served on the ISC Perspectives and Membership committees. Steinunn Thorarinsdottir will finish her service at the end of the year. She has participated on
the ISCís Awards, International Affairs, and Membership committees, helping to increase the international presence of the International Sculpture Center. I would also like to thank all of the Board members for their many contributions that led to a successful 2012 for the ISC.
On behalf of the Board and staff, best wishes to everyone for a happy holiday season.
