At Unity Pavilion - 1 February to 15 March 2019
Monday – Saturday 10 AM to 4 PM
from 3 to 6 PM on the 4 Sundays of Feb 3rd & 10th; March 3rd &10th
The 4th ART FOR LAND exhibition will kick off on February 1st and continue till March 15th - led and hosted by the Unity Pavilion in collaboration with AV Arts Service & the Acres for Auroville land campaign.
Auroville’s creative artists have come together once again to create a splendid offering of beauty to raise funds for Auroville’s missing Master Plan land. They are joined by artist friends from the Ashram, in India and from the worldwide AVI centers – making over 90 participating artists in the media of painting, sculpture, pottery, textiles, jewelry, and photography.
All the artists have made the donation of their original works to raise funds for the land. In an action of flowing generosity, you can choose an artwork and thereby make a contribution for land purchase. The ART FOR LAND action is entirely non-commercial. All donations go for land purchase in the Master Plan area via the Acres for Auroville campaign.
If you are in Auroville, we warmly invite you to come to the Inauguration Concert on Feb 1st at 4 PM and make a first visit of the artworks. The exhibition will be ongoing till March 15th. https://www.aurovilleradio.org/art-for-land-inauguration-on-1st-of-february-with-plenty-of-good-music/
To see the artworks at our online gallery and for more information please visit: artforland.in Artwork reservations can be made at Unity Pavilion or online via our site. Works will be held for 10 days until your donation is received. The “How it Works” page on our site provides information on how to donate. Tax exemptions are possible for Indian donors and via certain Auroville International centers (notably for taxpayers in the USA, Germany, and the UK).
