The conference that Shwetabh and I recently attended was hosted at Samudrika - the naval auditorium at Vishakhapatnam. The auditorium housed some very good sculptures whose style ranged from ancient Indian to modern. Take a look.
In fact, I am under the impression that sculpture as a popular artform is very much alive in Orissa. I could see some stone sculptors sitting along side the road with finished or half finished works put up for display on the footpath. Also, the squares and chaurahas were decorated with skillfully done sculpture in various styles instead of the gaudy poorly done ones that I find in UP and MP.
