On Saturday, April 24, Americans for the Arts will celebrate International Sculpture Day (ISDay), a worldwide event created by the International Sculpture Center (ISC) for anyone with an appreciation or commitment to the field of sculpture. We’ll be participating in the global #ISDay social media campaign by highlighting public sculptures in the week leading up to ISDay and hosting a public art quiz on our Instagram stories on April 24. Follow us @americans4arts to join in the fun!

With over 40 million online impressions in 2020, ISDay has become the foremost celebrated sculpture event in the world, furthering the ISC’s mission of advancing the creation and understanding of sculpture and its unique, vital contribution to society. We encourage all our members and followers to take part—whether you’re promoting an event to celebrate the opening of a new artwork or showcasing your public art collections via social media. Check out ISC’s website for more participation ideas at sculpture.org/isday.

We hope to “see” you there!
