     ART FOR LAND – “Beauty for a Cause”

A collaboration of Unity Pavilion, Aurovillle Art Service, & A4A – for Auroville’s Missing Land

At the Unity Pavilion until February 21st, open daily from 10 AM to 4:30 PM

Art for Land 2020 was launched on January 11th by the Honourable Dr. Kiran Bedi, Lt. Governor of Puducherry to a full house at the Unity Pavilion in an inspiring atmosphere of beauty and united aspiration. Dr. Bedi’s warm words about the importance of Auroville and of art were recorded by Auroville Radio. Now in its 5th year, Art for Land presents a high-level exhibition of beautiful works by over 90 artists from Auroville, the Ashram, India, and worldwide – all contributed by the artists to raise funds for Auroville’s missing land.  The works can be seen and reserved at the Unity Pavilion or online at Proceeds from the art, associated media sales, and the fundraising events will all go to the Acres for Auroville land campaign to be used by Auroville’s Land Board for the purchase of the still-missing Master Plan plots. The “Acres for Auroville Update” article in December’s Auroville Today shows what happens when Auroville can purchase its missing plots. Bring your support for land purchase by participating in Art for Land 2020!
