International Festival of Arts and Ideas

New Haven, CT

In 1997, the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, under the artistic directorship of Cynthia Hedstrom, commissioned Shpitalnik to create an art iinstallation on the New Haven Town Green. The results of this commission are the 20 feet high wooden “puppet sculptures” featured here. Founded in 1996 by Anne Tyler Calabresi, Roslyn Meyer, and Jean Handley, the International Festival was launched as a way to “…bring together the people of the greater New Haven community and visitors from other cities, states and countries, through an annual celebration of artists and thinkers from around the globe.” ( from Festival website)
