Maine Coast Stone Symposium - Boothbay Railway Village

586 Wiscasset Road
Boothbay, Maine
Phone: (207) 633-4727

          

Aug 01 thru Aug 31, 2017. From granite for some of the country's most significant public buildings to slate for roof tiles, commercial mining and stone working has thrived in Maine since around 1800. The sector's evolution affected transportation by both sea and rail, while technological advances changed the industry in significant ways. Today, Maine stone artists and artisans still use many traditional techniques to create everything from garden benches to world-renowned public architecture. Join us in August 2017 for a month-long celebration of the history, art and culture of Maine's stone industry. Look for educational programs, a history exhibit, and a 10-day sculpture symposium investigating the ties between technology, industry and the creative world. Special events include an opening reception on Thursday, Aug. 10; a Stone Symposium on Friday, Aug. 11 through Sunday, Aug. 20 (with artists working); and a closing celebration with artists on Thursday, Aug. 24.
