Abstract

City of Hachioji was the first municipality that introduced the Sculpture Symposium as part of the Sculpture in Public Place Program. This paper analyzed the development process of the ideas, concepts, and outcomes of the Sculpture Symposia before the first Hachioji Symposium held in 1976, and how Hachioji city administration combined the symposium with the public sculpture policy. In conclusion, Hachioji city administration was not interested in the underlying ideas and concepts of the sculpture symposium. Their major concern was the administrative advantages of the symposium scheme. Therefore, important ideas and concepts of the sculpture symposium developed during 1960s and 70s were lost in the subsequent sculpture symposia initiated by the local governments. Sculpture in Public Place Program and Sculpture Symposium were not successfully combined.
