Schoodic sculptor vote now under way
April 1 deadline

Out of hundreds of applicants from all over the world, the seven “finalist” sculptors have been chosen by the Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium.

Castine has voted to have its sculpture placed on the Wilson Museum lawn.

The sculptors’ portfolios can be seen at by clicking on “2014 Symposium.” The Castine Sculpture Committee encourages all residents, year-round and seasonal, to review the work and vote for their first, second and third choices, according to a press release. Do this by sending an email to and put SCULPTURE VOTE in the subject line.

The deadline for the vote is April 1. The sculpture committee will tally the votes and relay the results to SISS, which will then do its best to match up the seven sculptors with the choices of the seven communities that will be receiving a sculpture.

The 2014 symposium will be held in Prospect Harbor and the Schoodic Peninsula from August 3 to September 14.
