The Washington Sculptors Group, founded in 1984, promotes awareness and an understanding of sculpture and fosters the exchange of ideas among sculptors, collectors, and the general public through sponsorship of frequent events, including artists’ panels, presentations, workshops, and social gatherings; co-sponsorship of programs with museums and other art groups; and organization of professionally-curated exhibitions in museums and alternative spaces in the Washington DC
area and beyond.
The work of WSG is carried out by its Board of Directors, along with its nearly
400 members—sculptors, collectors, curators, and others interested in sculpture—in its working committees. WSG received the Mayor’s Arts Award for Excellence in Service to the Arts in 2004.
