During the 3 weeks of the sculpture symposium over 300 school children from the Blackfoot Valley were provided with the opportunity to spend a day in the sculpture park, meeting the artists and making temporary sculptures from materials found within the forest landscape.
Bynum schoolteacher, Susan Luinstra coments:
Because the children were here during the process and talked to many of the artists, watched the making process and heard what their inspiration was, they are really attached to each piece now. They had the opportunity to meet art as an experience. Most of us have only an opportunity to look at art.

Community volunteers sharing their time, energy, good humor and expertise made this symposium work. Throughout the 3 weeks of the sculpture symposium volunteers arrived daily and worked with the artists. Volunteers from as far away as Minneapolis joined with local and regional volunteers to help create the large-scale sculpture installations in the park.
This photo album shows a small selection of the many volunteers who helped to make this symposium a huge success. Thank you for being there.
