Executive Director’s Letter:
The International Sculpture Center has been advancing the creation and understanding of sculpture for over half a century. We are pleased to present our strategic plan for the next three years, which builds on past achievements and serves as a map for our future. This plan, made in collaboration with Board members, staff, and individuals in the international arts community, seeks to fortify every facet of the ISC. It offers innovative ways to increase member benefits, present new publications, build national and international ties, and advance relationships with and between sculptors, organizations, collectors, and patrons.
Key priorities are governance, ensuring a balanced Board; pathways, creating new ways to cultivate members; partnerships, encouraging collaborations with businesses and other nonprofits; personalization, putting our members front and center across all platforms; presentation, giving the ISC a makeover as part of a new marketing strategy; and sustainability, gaining long-term funding to ensure a secure future.
—Johannah Hutchison, ISC Executive Director
