Summary :

This collection contains survey sheets and background information on Vermont outdoor sculpture assembled by Save Outdoor Sculpture! (SOS!) during the period 1992-1993. The surveyors completed 242 surveys for sculpture dating from 1740 to 1993. A few of the sculptures surveyed were no longer extant. The folders contain survey sheets completed by SOS! volunteers and, in some cases, photographs, photocopies of photographs, and/or photocopies of background information.

Biographical or historical data :

Vermont SOS! was part of a national project of the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, and the National Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Property. Locally, the project was sponsored by the Vermont Museum and Gallery Alliance (VMGA).

The goals of SOS! were twofold: to raise awareness about the need to provide care for outdoor sculpture, and to train volunteers to locate and document every outdoor sculpture in the nation. The original survey forms were sent to the National Museum of American Art for entry into a database called the Inventory of American Sculpture.
