For the art lovers of Jaipur, Rajasthan Lalit Kala Academy has introduced the concept of a movable art gallery in the form of ‘Exhibition Van’. Exhibition Van has been designed to show art paintings, sculptures, art movies and documentaries of renowned artists of the country, to art students as well as national and international tourists.
Now you don’t have to go to art exhibitions to see art paintings or sculptures. The van shall be sent to different tourist destinations of city where you can watch those paintings and art movies. An expert shall accompany the van and shall provide information about the paintings to the art lovers along with interacting with them.
Academy has prepared annual programmes subordinating Art Exhibition and promotion. Firstly, the van shall be sent to the art schools of city to aware students about art. Followed by this, it shall be sent to tourist destinations of the city, where local and foreign tourists shall familiarize with the Indian art. For this, officials of academy shall connect with tourism and archaeology department.
After completing the first phase in form of touring the tourist destinations and art schools of the Pink City, the Exhibition Van shall also be taken to various other cities of Rajasthan and other states as well to make people aware about the cultural heritage of art (both in urban and rural areas).
