Feuerman, Michael Gitlin, Ewerdt Hilgemann, Ben Keating, Sean Mellyn, Shelter Serra, and Ray Smith, among others. The exhibition will continue throughout the summer of 2015.

The inaugural International Sculpture Day is scheduled to have over 50 events across the globe, with representation in over 12 countries and reaching a projected audience of over 30,000 attendees. The International Sculpture Center (ISC) established the International Sculpture Day program in 2014 as an annual celebration event held worldwide on April 24 to further the ISC’s mission of advancing the creation and understanding of sculpture and its unique, vital contribution to society. This program has been made possible through generous donations by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
