Mark Twain IS Students Support National Brancusi Campaign|Elevii Mark Twain IS Sprijina Campania Nationala Brancusi

Posted: July 28, 2016

'Brancusi belongs to us!' affirmed Mark Twain IS students, in support of the official national subscription campaign launched by the Romanian Government and the Ministry of Cultural Affairs for the acquisition of the 'Wisdom of the Earth' sculpture by Constantin Brancusi.|„Brancusi ne apartine!" au afirmat inimosii elevi de la Mark Twain IS. Acestia nu au plecat in vacanta de vara pana nu au participat la o actiune importanta de strangere de fonduri in cadrul campaniei de sustinere a subscriptiei nationale pentru achizitia operei lui Constantin Brancusi „Cumintenia pamantului", lansata oficial de Guvernul Romaniei si Ministerul Culturii.

Just before the school year came to an end in June, Mark Twain IS students had the special honour to meet Ms. Sorana Georgescu-Gorjan, whose father and grand-father worked together with the great sculptor to design the remarkable 'Infinity Column'. The students were fascinated by the interesting stories about the famous Romanian artist and asked numerous prepared, and spontaneous, questions about his life and his world-renowned pieces of art.|Cu aceasta ocazie, elevii nostri au avut onoarea de a o cunoaste pe Doamna Sorana Georgescu-Gorjan, fiica si nepoata inginerilor care au lucrat alaturi de marele sculptor roman la „Coloana Infinitului". Doamna Georgescu-Gorjan a avut amabilitatea de a impartasi elevilor nostri amintiri speciale si povesti fascinante despre marele artist roman si despre operele sale, renumite in intreaga lume, si, totodata de a le raspunde la o multitudine de întrebari pregatite, dar si spontane, despre Brancusi si despre arta sa.

The students in both Mark Twain IS campuses also donated money in order to keep the 'Wisdom of the Earth' in the possession of the Romanian State, and received some refreshing and well-deserved ice-cream in return during the exciting campaign. At the end of the day, student representatives delivered the total amount of 2 300 Lei into the campaign account at the local bank.|La incheierea actiunii, elevii nostri au fost rasplatiti cu inghetata delicioasa si bine-meritata, iar elevi-reprezentanti din ambele campusuri scolare au depus la banca locala cei 2 300 de lei stransi in contul campaniei.
