Children from this city's streets will be among the up-and-coming artists, who will display their works on canvas at the annual arts extravaganza - the 'Harmony Art Show' this year.

The Tina Ambani-promoted show, to be be inaugurated by eminent singer and Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar, will showcase the works of India's 158 biggest and budding artists.

While two out of every three exhibits would be credited to emerging artists, the show will also have works by Satish Gujral, Akbar Padamsee, Amarnath Sehgal, Gulam Sheikh, Manu Parekh and Sakti Burman on display, a release said today.

The event will also provide a platform to street children supported by NGO 'Aseema' and display art and designs by them.

As a tribute to the celebrated families like the Parekhs, Choyals, Adivrekars and the Burmans who have contributed tremendously to the field of art, the 11th Harmony show has been centred around the theme of 'Art in the Family'.

Harmony awards for emerging artist, lifetime contribution in art, literature and culture would also be conferred at the show.
