‘Public art is encompasses any form of art you see in a public place, large or small, statues, murals, graffiti, gardens, parks, etc. The art should be visible from streets, sidewalks or outdoor public places’. PPAC
“The role of the arts in creating a conducive ambience for the spiritual pursuit has always been central in this culture. It is not accidental that the most powerfully consecrated temples were also vibrant centres of dance and music” Sadhguru
Who is the real Indian?
One can easily get confused about the usage of the term INDIAN
My understanding is the word ‘Indian’ refers to people from India.
I don’t understand the reason why Native Americans are referred to as Indians.
Do they call themselves Indians? I don’t know.
Further, I get confused as to why the word ‘Indian’ is used regarding people from Caribbean countries.
Or maybe Christopher Columbus wrongly thought he entered India!.
So who is the actual Indian?
You can help me if you know more about this.
“Indian Art broadened my seeing, loosened the formal tightness I had learned in England’s schools. Its bigness and stark reality baffled my white man’s understanding… I had been schooled to see outsides only, not struggle to pierce” Emily Carr, Canadian Artist (quotehd.com)
She was a controversial artist according to a few.
Everything one does or did or says can have supporters or opponents. That is the way of life.
Maybe readers from Canada can enrich us about her.
