The International Sculpture Trail continues the legacy of creating contemporary sculptures from local granite by international artists. The Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium held its first event at the Acadia National Park in Maine on the Schoodic Peninsula in 2007, resulting in 7 sculptures placed along coastal towns in Maine and beginning a new trail system that now spans over 483 km (300 mi.). The 34 resulting sculptures along the Maine trail continues with the addition of the Canadian works of art. Holding its first Symposium in 2012, the New Brunswick International Sculpture Symposium has held two biennial events. The Canadian sculpture trail will result in over 35 large scale sculptures by 2020. Combined, the two trails make up a unique international art exhibition of large scale granite sculptures by world-renowned artists.
