National telethon in September to gather money for purchasing ‘Wisdom of the Earth’
A national telethon will be hosted by the public television TVR on 18 September to collect the money necessary to purchase the ‘Wisdom of the Earth’ sculpture of Constantin Brancusi.
“The government is very hopeful that this event will bring together all the necessary energies to collect the sum agreed with the sculpture’s owners. (…) It is a marathon telethon and we are expecting several people to donate within this charity event to purchasing the ‘Wisdom of the Earth’,” the government’s spokesman Liviu Iolu said at the Victoria Palace, the Executive’s seat.
The official added he learned of a revival of the donations campaign for the acquisition of Brancusi’s work.
Iolu also said that the ‘Wisdom of the Earth’ should be purchased by 31 October, while the fundraising campaign ends on 30 September.
