The Artist

Ildikó Kalapács is a Hungarian American visual artist and folk dancer living in the US, but traveling between her native country and the US. Her personal experiences of East and West, living in a socialist and a capitalist country, and studying cultural layers through folk dance and anthropology gave her an appreciation of diversity. Despite the importance of seeking cultural uniqueness in the era of globalization, she recognizes our common experiences. Her Bearing sculpture is based on one of those universal experiences.

The public sculpture titled "Bearing" will be cast life-size in bronze.
