Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Janos Stone



Janos Stone, a Brooklyn-based sculptor known for large-scale interactive multimedia works, was commissioned by the Hungarian government to create what emerged as a monumental piece to be installed at the Hungarian Cultural Center in New York’s SoHo district. A couple of days before installing the project Stone was informed that Hungarian cultural officials in the newly elected right wing government were discontinuing all arts funding that had been set by the previous government. His show was cancelled. Stone discusses the fallout with host Michael Rush. (30 minutes)
