THIS WEEK’S GOOD NEWS:
After the high-energy inauguration, the donated art collection is still growing. It now counts over 300 works from 90 participating artists – 60 from Auroville – making this 4 th year our biggest so far! And our calendar of fundraising events continues to expand as well. We are grateful for the generosity of the artists and the events presenters. Our site: artforland.in
Here’s the AV Radio interview with ART FOR LAND organizers Jaya and Devasmita of the Unity Pavilion who discuss their goals & aspirations for the land, as well as the intense behind-the-scenes work of the teams needed for such a complex event:
HOW “ART FOR LAND” WORKS:
– A non-commercial system of flowing generosity and all donations go for the purchase of missing Master Plan acres – Come to the exhibition and choose an artwork to donate for. Or browse the works by artist or media via our online gallery at artforland.in. Click on a photo for more information about the work and the artist. With another click you can ask a question or reserve a work via the reservation form that will appear. Artwork reservations will be held for 10 days until your donation is received. Donations can be made to ART FOR LAND by check or bank transfer or online using the ACRES FOR AUROVILLE button at https://donations.auroville.com/ Tax deductions are available for Indian donors and via certain AVI Centers. Shipping of works by Unity Pavilion is unfortunately not possible but you can designate a friend in Auroville to pick up your artwork on your behalf. Our website’s “How it Works” page gives complete information on reserving a work and on making a donation.
