Talk by Jesse Salisbury on ‘Creating the Maine Sculpture Trail’

Community Author: Southwest Harbor Public Library
Post Date:

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Steuben sculptor and Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium founder Jesse Salisbury will give a presentation on the history of the Symposium and on creating the Maine Sculpture Trail 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday, July 10, at Southwest Harbor Public Library, 338 Main St.

The Maine Sculpture Trail is a collection of 34 one-of-a-kind sculptures that creates an outdoor exhibit spanning over 200 miles along the coast of Downeast Maine, produced during the Symposium’s ten-year run. You can visit one of these sculptures, “Sisters,” on the Library’s front lawn. Another, called “Tension,” is located in Bar Harbor at Barker Park, next to the post office.

In 2017 the Symposium published a book about the Trail, “Creating the Maine Sculpture Trail: Legacy of the Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium”, which “chronicles this unique public art project through many voices and photos,” according to Salisbury in the book’s foreword.
