KCP's golden jubilee fete starts tomorrow

 The Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath is hosting a week-long programme between May 5 and 10 to mark its 50th anniversary and the birth centenary of former chief minister D Devaraj Urs. 

The highlight will be a photography exhibition on the KCP’s milestones. As many as 600 photographs will be exhibited in four galleries at the KCP. Legislative Assembly Speaker Kagodu Thimmappa will inaugurate the exhibition at 5 pm on May 5, KCP president B L Shankar told reporters here on Tuesday.

Besides seminars and art workshops, the KCP is focusing its energy on opening a college at Ganakallu in Uttarahalli. While the government has leased around 14 acres of land for the institute, work has not begun as the allocated funds (Rs 13 crore) have not been released.
The KCP is finalising the blueprint for the college. Shankar said the project was estimated to cost Rs 35 crore. The KCP hopes to raise the remaining funds by donations.

Apart from existing disciplines, the KCP will introduce courses in Animation and Ceramics. The proposed college will also have studios, hostels, auditoriums, museums and galleries.
