With 255 works presented, the second edition of the Capa Foundry International Sculpture Contest had a 46% increase in participation compared to the first edition.
The purpose of the contest is, through a sculptural project in any of the chosen scales, to bring sculpture closer to society as it has been done in photography, this being part of the urban space, landart, interior design, and collecting. In short, the sculpture must communicate with the human being, and its creations can be made through foundries such as the Capa Foundry.
The Capa Foundry, with the union of the I + D + ART philosophy, established the objective of this II Edition to bring innovation and new creation techniques closer to both established sculptors and those who start this sculpture adventure and to be able to give them a new way of creation with the technology that the Capa Foundry can contribute in the 21st century.
The Capa foundry thanks all those present for their effort and participation and will soon begin with enthusiasm the preparation of the Third Edition of the Capa Foundry International Sculpture Contest that will be held next year.
