“The lands for Auroville are to be bought and can be bought. The money is needed.
Will you help?”
These two messages of The Mother guide and animate ART FOR LAND. The Mother, an artist herself, always encouraged artistic expression in all its forms, so that beauty and creativity are an integral part of Auroville. This aspiration and its realizations radiate and shine in Art for Land 2021.
And this is an action of beauty for a cause – helping to build The City of Dawn. All the magnificent works have been generously donated by the artists: each artwork you purchase, and each donation you make, bring needed resources for the purchase of Auroville’s designated but still-missing land!
After the inspiring inauguration, the Liminal Space exhibition and events are in full swing. The high-quality artworks line the walls and cover tables of the Unity Pavilion and spread out into its garden. Works can be viewed and reserved online www.artforlandonline.com or at the Unity Pavilion (daily from 10 AM to 4 PM non-stop).
Aurovilians who would like to buy artworks but have limited budgets can pay through monthly contributions as arranged with AFL and Financial service. More information is available at (+ 91) 413 -2623576 and at firstname.lastname@example.org
NEW – AFL 2021 now has a beautiful space at the Visitor’s Center – the Art for Land Art Counter – selling photos, art prints, cards and books that have been generously donated by the artists. The counter is open weekdays from 11 AM to 6 PM and weekends 8.30 AM to 6 PM.
Together we hope to increase the flow of generosity for the land and we will be happy if these works also bring beauty, joy, and light into your home and life!
