Clones Stone Sculpture Symposium
Marc curated "Mor Chuid Cloch", a stone sculpture symposium held in Clones Town which lasted 6 days in May 2012.
Kelly was commissioned by Monaghan County Council to organise, oversee and also participate in the unique event which was very successful in its objectives. 6 renown sculptors from around Ireland were chosen to sculpt and educate while the general public, local schools were able to visit, chat and even try their hands at carving some local Sandstone in a trial area set up for the 6 days.
