LIBERTY HILL – A cacophony of creativity fills the air around this little town’s Market Square

these days a strange symphony brought here by the first International Sculpture Symposium ever to take place in the Southwest.

Punctuating the din are the clink-clunks of metal on marble, the screams of power saws biting into limestone, the rat-a-tat-tat of  neumatic drills eating through granite.

As chips of stone fall rhythmically to the ground under the steady onslaught of inspiration and talent, an undercurrent of eloquent French or Italian or sing-songy Japanese can frequently be heard.

THE 25 SCULPTORS who have come by invitation to take part in the symposium represent seven different nationalities and many speak only a trace of English.
