A non-commercial cycle of generosity and gratitude for the existence of Auroville                                                

At Unity Pavilion, Mondays – Saturdays from 9:30 am to 4 pm

1 January to 15 February 2018

Join us in sharing beauty, showcasing creativity, and building a 50th birthday gift for the land!

Come to the Unity Pavilion, make a land donation, and receive a beautiful work of art as a gift. Or view the special Art for Land collection on our online gallery and reserve an artwork artforland.auroville.org.

More than 70 artists from Auroville, the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, India, and AVI centers from around the world have donated their works to raise funds for completing Auroville’s Master Plan land base. Works include paintings, ceramics, photographs, glasswork, jewelry, collages, and sculpture. Some artworks created by Ashram artists were blessed by the Mother.

Don’t miss this special opportunity – exhibition treasures include unique ceramic works and pottery by reputed Auroville creators: Kratu – who recently closed his studio – and by Adil Writer, Ange, Anamika, Michel, Priya Sundaravalli, Supriya Menon Meneghetti – plus from Egypt, a work by Suzanne Wissa Wassef in Aswan & Sinai clay!

Several artworks are available as postcards, along with other items, along with a parallel fundraiser of donated rare photographs of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.

All donations go exclusively for purchasing Auroville’s missing Master Plan land
