Bear Festival

Sculptors 2020

25 sculptors from across Finland have registered for the 2020 Bear Sculpting Championships. The theme of the competition is Freestyle. In the spirit of the ITE art jubilee year, the sculptors will have the freedom to treat the surface of their works as they wish. They are also allowed to have an assistant. Several new entrants are participating in the competition. The introductory texts for the sculptors who have taken part in the past were mainly written by the students of Ilomantsi upper secondary school, for which we warmly thank them!
