One of the marquee events of the International Sculpture Center is our biennial conference. (In alternate years, the ISC hosts smaller symposia.) Held in Chicago, October 4Ė6, this year, the 23rd International Sculpture Conference: Process, Patron, Public offers speakers, panel
discussions, workshops, and tours of many of Chicagoís wonderful galleries. Your conference experience will definitely broaden your appreciation of sculpture.
While the presentations will be outstanding, often the most memorable experiences occur in related encounters in hotel lounges, restaurants, and on gallery tours, where ideas are casually shared, where attendees can trade experiences and challenge each other intellectually. These exchanges play an important part in our quest to promote positive change through the appreciation of sculpture. Knowing that you will be spending three days with people who share your passion for sculpture, you should also know that the conference will renew your trust in our mission as an arts advocate.
For me, networking with others is one of the greatest benefits of the ISC. Building relationships that strengthen our understanding and appreciation of sculpture is the heart of what the ISC is all about. Friendships formed at ISC conferences will further engage you in our mission and strengthen our ability to promote the power of sculpture to effect social change.
Beyond networking opportunities, I believe that you will also gain from encounters with the ISC team. This is your chance to meet the people who work hard throughout the year to promote the ISCís
mission. You will find that they are dedicated, enthusiastic, eloquent
people who want your ISC experience to be rewarding. Embrace this opportunity to get to know them and offer your insight on what we can do to serve you better.
