Summer Workshop I
The “en-plain aire” Summer Workshop provided opportunity for ten Hungarian painters, graphic and textile artists, as well as art historians to discover Benczúrfalva and surroundings, a part of Hungary with incomparable natural endowments and of great significance in cultural history as a source of inspiration. Benczúrfalva was Gyula Benczúr’s last place of work, where PAN Foundation has been working hard for eight years in order to strengthen awareness on its value as part of Hungarian cultural heritage.
One of the objectives of the Workshop was to call attention to a milieu ideal for artistic activities and creative work, like Benczúrfalva and surroundings in order to reconnect this place into Hungarian artistic and cultural life.
Another objective of the Summer Workshop was to provide opportunity for young students of art and drawing for development and self-expression, thus there were three students among the participants.
Creative work and mental recreation in the Workshop were supplemented by art seminars and lectures on art history.
