Stone Carving Symposium

Host: Bienal Chaco Country: Argentina Jurried Participation

Since 1988 at the Plaza '25 de mayo 1810' in the city of Resistencia, Argentina, the government of the Chaco Province has organized a national Open Air Sculpture Contest. The national event has now turned international. These events attract the most prestigious sculptors from Argentina and from the world as well as a massive local community and tourists from diverse points in the world. The event fairgrounds transform into a cultural and social re-unification of artists and urbanites attracting more than 10,000 visitors per day and more than 45,000 during the opening and closing ceremonies. Originally, wood was carved, but as of 1996 marble, travertine, and metal are utilized as well. The far reaching success of this organization has pinned Resistencia onto the leaderboard of internationally recognized sculpture events, allowing for sponsorship by UNESCO, which in turn has recognized this event as one of the most important in the world dealing with the sculptural arts discipline.
