“Sculpture Today” is a series of international conferences which has been organized by the Centre of Polish Sculpture in Orońsko since 2016. In 2018-2019 Poland is hosting a major Henry Moore exhibition in collaboration with the Henry Moore Foundation. This conference will be exploring more broadly the phenomenon that is the Sculpture Park.
