Art to better special children's lives

Group exhibition

Some people definitely believe that art can change the world. The non-government organisation, Udaan joined hands with some eminent Indian and international artists to make ArtReflect 2016 happen.

Artists like Anjalie Ela Menon, Jayashri Burman, Madhvi Parekh and Raghu Rai pitched in for a two day group art show at the India Habitat Centre from March 7 to 9. The show is a fundraiser for Udaan, which is a foundation for children with autism, mental retardation and cerebral palsy.

Nilanjan Bhowal, managing trustee, Udaan tells Metrolife, “The intention is to spread the word about our work. The artists have been nice enough to collaborate with us.”

The exhibition consists of sketches, paintings, installations and photographs.

The artworks range from Rs 30, 000 to 20 lakhs. There is no particular theme, 22 artists have donated their prime works, and the cost when bought will be directly donated to Udaan for development and better facilities for special children.

“Nearly 50 per cent of the artworks are sold out. The show was extremely successful,” says Bhowal.

ArtReflect is Bhowal’s own intiative, he is the recipient of Hudco and NDTV awards for heritage conservation, TERI’s award for India’s first five star rated green home. The show ends today at Visual Arts Gallery at Indian Habitat Centre.
