The Nashua International Sculpture Symposium is an annual community event designed to elevate the awareness and appreciation of public art in Nashua. Nashua is the only city in the U.S. which hosts an annual international sculpture symposium. This was originally inspired by Meri Goyette, a major arts supporter who resides in Nashua, and John Weidman, director of the Andres Institute of Art, Brookline, New Hampshire. Nashua has celebrated its International Sculpture Symposium since 2008.
Artists are invited from around the world to spend three weeks in Nashua creating public art. Truly a community project, residents host the artists in their homes, bring meals as they work, provide transportation, and interact with the artists as they create. The completed sculptures are then placed in public places throughout the City for all to enjoy.
