Scores of students of Chamarajendra Academy of Visual Arts (CAVA), on Thursday, staged a flash protest opposing the shifting of the institute to the new building on Bannur Road, in the city.

The students took to protest as a goods van belonging to the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) arrived at the campus to shift the materials to the new building, near the German Press, on Bannur Road. As decided earlier, the new academic year should begin on the new campus, so, the faculty had been shifted on June 15. What remained was the articles at the old building on Sayyaji Rao Road.

The students demanded for revoking of the decision, citing that the existing campus is           an ideal location for the budding artists, who especially travel from faraway places to the institute.

The new building lacks infrastructural facilities, including seats.The college has a total of 350 students pursuing Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and Master of Fine Arts (MFA) courses. Most of them are dependent on the materials available in the nearby market for daily use and also perfect settings in the crowded market place, bus stand among others that will be recreated on canvas.
