Nashua International Sculpture Symposium

June 28, 2023 - The Nashua International Sculpture Symposium held its 16th annual Symposium from May 15th to June 1st, 2023.  This year's theme was "Voices to the Future".

The 2023 Symposium sculptors were Parastoo Ahovan from Iran, Jim Larson from USA, Tanya Preminger from Israel and Anna Rasinska from Poland.  

As in past years, the sculptors worked outside. The public visited the sculptors at the Picker Artists' Studios at 3 Pine Street as they worked to create their beautiful sculptures. 

The Closing Ceremony was held on Saturday, June 3rd in Nashua at the various installation sites (see locations underneath sculpture photos).  We want to extend our thanks to everyone who came to support the NISS.

The symposium is an annual community event designed to elevate the awareness and appreciation of public art in Nashua.  More information on past symposiums, can be found online.
