On June 25, Ambassador of Hungary György Szapáry hosted a kickoff reception at his residence for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival which this year showcases Hungary’s heritage, culture and artistic traditions. He thanked Hungarian-born Aniko Gaal Schott who had found and decorated the residence. Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Tibor Navracsics expressed his appreciation to loyal supporters of the arts Adrienne Arsht, Ina Ginsburg, Nina and Philip Pillsbury and Ann and Bill Nitze. Smithsonian Under Secretary for History, Art and Culture Richard Kurin said over 100 Hungarians had been busily erecting “a new monument on the Mall” for the Festival which will run through July 7.
