ABC Stone sponsors the Artist Residency in Carrara as part of its ongoing commitment to sustaining and promoting the use of stone in artistic practice. Of the many creative treatments of this material, traditional carving has suffered a decline of knowledge base during the past century. ABC seeks to address this by pairing young artists with master sculptors for experiential learning through intensive mentoring.
It is our belief that deepening the awareness of stone commensurately widens respect for this venerable medium and the millennia-old human tradition of transforming it through highly skilled craft. Whether in Michelangelo's homeland or in our very own NYC backyard, ABC remains devoted to sponsoring the cultural arts and in particular stone artistry.
