The Nashua International Sculpture Symposium is a collaborative volunteer endeavor of the City of Nashua, Nashua Arts Commission, City Arts Nashua, the Nashua Area Artists Association and the Andres Institute of Art.
The purpose of NISS is to create outdoor public art that engages the public, generates enthusiasm for art, and identifies Nashua as a unique and special place.
Each year since 2008 artists are invited to Nashua for three weeks to create outdoor public art for the City. The artists’ stipend plus materials are the only costs. All other needs for a successful event are generously donated by the community. NIMCO has generously donated the space for the artists to work. Throughout the three weeks of the Symposium, people sign up to provide lunch and dinner for the artists. Host families open their homes. Volunteers provide transportation. The Symposium Committee, all volunteers as well, organize various fundraisers.
