Who We Are

ISC members include sculptors, collectors, architects, journalists, curators, historians, critics, educators, fabricators, galleries, museums and parks & gardens – anyone with an interest in and commitment to the field of sculpture. And to each member, the ISC offers a unique set of resources, opportunities and benefits.

No matter what our specialty might be, we all share a common interest—a love of sculpture. Whether you make, curate, collect, exhibit, or teach sculpture, the ISC has resources and connections tailored for you. Maybe you are an artist looking for a public commission, a curator or writer looking for new artists to showcase, or a student seeking a BFA or MFA program that matches your interests. Perhaps you are an arts administrator working for a museum, gallery, or sculpture park, seeking to connect with new audiences and raise awareness of your programs. You might be a fabricator interested in connecting artists with your services. There are thousands of people in the ISC community who are as passionate as you in their love of sculpture, and our goal is to bring everyone together.
