The Sculpture Competition is Underway!

Kelsy Landin, Day 1
Our Classical Figure Sculpture Competition kicked off Monday at 9am. The twelve sculptors worked feverishly from 9am - 6pm on Day 1, and afterwards hung out at the first viewing of their work-in-progress. Over the course of the week, the sculptors will model a 32" figure from life with the model posing for 8 hours a day for a total of 40 hours. On Friday, a panel of judges will award a First Place prize of $10,000; Second Place, $3,000; and Third Place, $2,000.

Evening events are free and open to the public - come on by! Refreshments are served!
