This is a rare show that deserves your support. Salaam Balak, a 20-year-old trust that runs four shelters for streetchildren in Delhi and Gurgaon, has organised an art show featuring two works each from 21 artists. In one of them, the artist has interpreted the theme that’s culled from a U2 song, Where the streets have no name, and the other is a collaboration with one of the 250-odd children under the trust’s wings.
The artists were chosen by curator Alka Pande on their capability to work with children. The works, which will be sold only in pairs, come for between Rs 1 lakh and Rs 6 lakh. Even if it’s not the art that draws you, maybe the tax exemption offered on the price will.
The exhibition opens on April 29 (7 pm) at the Visual Arts Gallery,India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road and is on till April 30
