From Bucksport to Calais, the 34 stone sculptures making up the Maine Sculpture Trail provides a fun way to explore some of the most scenic, unspoiled parts of the state.
From 2007 to 2014, Maine’s Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium drew artists from all over the globe who participated in five juried summer sessions. Using locally quarried granite and basalt, the sculptors — who hailed from 16 nations ranging from Taiwan to Sweden.
The resulting Maine Sculpture Trail winds through Hancock and Washington counties and includes pieces in Bangor, Orono and Old Town. The Maine trail also is linked to a similar project — Sculpture Saint John — across the border in Canada’s New Brunswick Province.
