Jaipur : Pink City would soon boast of a sculpture park at one of its most visited mountain top Nahargarh Fort.
The Madhavendra Palace at Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur will get a makeover with a sculpture park, replete with art works by leading Indian and international artists on display at heritage property.
The project, being initiated by the government of Rajasthan in collaboration with a non-profit organisation Saath Saath Arts, will showcase art works by 14 Indian and six international artists, selected by artist and gallery director Peter Nagy.
The idea of the sculpture park is to make it a place for a marvellous synthesis of the past and the present with this project. Nagy says : “For most of my career as a gallerist and curator, I have been trying to break away from the white-box exhibition space. Jaipur is one of the first places where tourists go. People travel for contemporary as well as traditional culture and this initiative will help to promote that further.”
