Maine Coast Stone Symposium

August 11 @ 8:00 am - August 20 @ 5:00 pm

From granite for some of the country’s most significant public buildings to slate for roof tiles, commercial quarrying and stone working has thrived in Maine since around 1800. The sector’s evolution affected transportation by both sea and rail, while technological advances changed the industry in significant ways. Today, Maine stone artists and artisans still use many traditional techniques to create everything from garden benches to world-renowned public architecture.

Watch artists at work during this 10-day sculpture symposium at Boothbay Railway Village that investigates the ties between technology, industry and the creative world. Twelve Maine artists will be joined by Kamu Nagasawa, a special guest sculptor from Japan. Mr. Nagasawa’s participation is made possible through the support of the Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium.
