Sculpture Saint John is made possible through grants, in-kind contributions, sponsorships and fundraising. The goals are to raise enough funds to run the six-week event, offer the finished sculptures to participating New Brunswick communities at minimal cost and to create an international sculpture trail to encourage tourism in southern New Brunswick.

A six-week event with this many participants cannot happen without the generous help and support of the community. The international artists often comment on the kindness and warm welcome they receive.
