Pacific Rim Sculptors Group was formed in 1988 by six San Francisco Bay Area sculptors who wanted to establish a new forum for their peers to meet, exchange ideas and exhibit their work. The first PRSG newsletter was published in August of 1990 and also in 1990 the relationship with the Contract Design Center was initiated. The by-laws were written in 1991 "to ensure we remain a democratic organization" and by 1993 the organization had grown to the point that an administrator was hired to handle day to day affairs and publish the newsletter.
Pacific Rim Sculpture Group currently has over 200 artist members througout Northern and Central California. All sculptors that live and/or work on the Pacific Rim are welcomed to join
