'Sculpture in the South' is looking for a few good volunteers for its event on May 16 and 17 in Azalea Park in Summerville.

The event features 35 of the nations leading fine arts sculptures, food and entertainment. But, here's a bit more about it from their Web site:

Perfect for the whole family, this upscale art event puts you up-close-and-personal with thirty-five of the nation’s leading fine art sculptors, representing original artworks ranging from cowboys to generals, ballet dancers to mythical characters, abstract forms to exotic animals in all sizes and techniques. All of the sculptors remain on site throughout the weekend, chatting casually with visitors, discussing the inspirations for their work, and demonstrating the processes and techniques used in creating their sculptures.    

You won’t want to miss seeing the remarkable sculpture created by students from Dorchester District II classrooms during the past school year in association with the Sculptor-in-Residence program.  While admiring our area youth’s creativity, attending children can learn about sculpture through age appropriate activities.

And don’t forget your appetite! Pull up a seat and savor absolutely mouth-watering Smokin’ Cole’s barbecue from the outdoor grill. 

This  is a wonderful way to spend a spring day - fine art sculpture of exceptional quality, family activities, great food ... too good to miss! So mark your calendar and meet us in May!

Admission is $5.

All interested volunteers can contact 843-851-7800 or askus@sculptureinthesouth.com
