The 2007 International Sculpture Symposium is well and truly underway with Mayor Joe Natoli checking in on the artist's progress this morning at Cotton Tree Park.
 
Four artists, two from Australia and two from Italy, have been chipping, cutting and carving their way through tonnes of Queensland marble all in full view of the public at Cotton Tree Park, Maroochydore.
 
"As part of the International Sculpture Symposium each artist was given one or more pieces of stone to create a masterpiece during a time frame of only 16 days," Cr Natoli said.
 
"We are now up to day seven and already the monumental sculptures are beginning to take shape."
 
Councillor Natoli said he would like to personally invite all Maroochy residents to Cotton Tree Park during the symposium to take advantage of the opportunity to watch the designs emerge into what will become part of a permanent public art collection.
 
"Generally, public art is created privately in art studios and installed once completed," he said. "In this symposium, all the work is done in a public place to give the community an insight into the amount of work that goes into stone sculpting.
 
"I'd like to encourage people to visit the site several times to watch the sculptures emerge from raw, natural stone and at the end of the symposium, residents will hopefully appreciate and understand the process of creating sculptural works of art."
 
The International Sculpture Symposium commenced 17 March and will continue until 1 April.
 
The Symposium is sponsored by Maroochy Council, Reed Property Group and the Curry Kenny Group.
