Presented by WSU's International Students' Council

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 have given her an appreciation of diversity. Despite the importance of seeking cultural uniqueness in the era of globalization, she recognizes our common experiences.

Kalapács is a two-time recipient of the Puffin Grant from the Puffin Foundation, Inc. and the executive director and artist of The Bearing Public Sculpture Project, which is working to place a life-size bronze sculpture in Spokane examining the human costs of war.
