Dear Sculpture Community,
Many sculptors contact the International Sculpture Center in search of information about sample contracts. Here are some ideas for follow up. We hope that those of you who check out these suggestions and or others, will share your personal experiences with us on the ISC Website (www.sculpture.org
) on Sculpture Community. Let us know what works for you and what to avoid. Thanks in advance and we look forward to learning from each other!
