Tarun Rai, CEO-WWM “ The Good Homes for Art initiative is our attempt to take Art mainstream. The idea is to take art out of galleries and to the people and hopefully into their homes. We want people to engage with art and artists. This is the second year of this initiative and so far it has been in Mumbai. We now plan to take it to other cities in India.”
Ronita Italia Dhanu “We are keeping the promise we made last year with GoodHomes for Art. The whole point of the initiative is – and will always be – to take art to the people. This year we’re pushing the envelop a bit with the reach and appeal of the GoodHomes for Art Week. We’re going to be creating fresh converts to the art world as much as we’re engaging and involving seasoned art lovers.
The calendar of our GoodHomes for Art Week 2013 is full of surprise treats, art trails, arty shopping sprees, impromptu paintings and installations, and, as always, great art. The idea is to get the people of Mumbai intrigued, interested and finally, involved in art, with art.”
The weeklong celebration of art will include talks, shows, workshops and much more. The agenda of this initiative is to break the misconception of art being elitist by connecting art with public. Art will now be witnessed not only at galleries but also be available for public display at various public spaces.
The events, workshops and open discussions between renowned artists and amateur art enthusiasts will enlighten every participant and help create and increase their passion for Art. The Art-week serves as an opportunity to help one understand art not only as a passion, but also as a way of expression.
