Chicago Sculpture International is a 501(c) (3) membership organization devoted to championing sculptors and the creation of sculpture. Its members seek to expand the understanding and appreciation of sculpture through exhibits, workshops, and collaborations. Chicago Sculpture International brings sculpture to the community and promotes a community for sculpture and sculptors. Chicago Sculpture International’s roots go back to the 1980s where a cooperative of sculptors created an exhibition on Chicago’s Navy Pier. Inspired by this exhibition’s public appreciation, the cooperative continued to display sculptures around the city and in 2004, the group formed Chicago Sculpture International with founding members Nicole Beck, Bob Emser, Terry Karpowicz, Christine Rojek, Tom Scarff and Barry Tinsley. Chicago Sculpture International was the first recognized chapter of the International Sculpture Center, which publishes Sculpture Magazine and supports sculptors through exhibitions, conferences, and funding opportunities. Currently, Chicago Sculpture International includes over 150 local, national and international members.
