Mary’s 1st weekend – the ‘Communist Work-Party’

Zsolt, as the new ceramic director, has been concerned about the repairs needed at the ICS – however there is no funding for this.  Since I arrived,  I have seen Zsolt working with the students, restoring walls, painting and making repairs, often on weekends, working pro-bono.

So this Saturday was designated a Studio clean-up day, and word was put out.  Artists from all over town, the students, and residents went to work.  Staff members like Emese and Klara as well [Jakab has been home with a cold this week] .  Bibo came and spent the entire day cooking Goulash, cabbage rolls and some cakes and some wonderful rolls. WE had a great feast at the end, with palinka and wine and Bibo’s wonderful food.  The painting and cement restoration will be ongoing, but already the Studio has a nice fresh look.
