Caribbean news. From November 9th to 27th internationally renowned sculptors, all members of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, will pack their chisels and hammers and head to the First Anguilla Sculpture Symposium – the first event of its kind in the Caribbean. This select group of artists will create unique public sculptures for permanent installation on Anguilla. Free and open to the public, this event offers visitors the unique opportunity to learn first-hand about public art and to watch the artists in action as they transform raw materials into imaginative, original pieces inspired by the island’s culture, history, and natural beauty.
