National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) organised “Spring Fiesta” 2023 to celebrate 69 years of the museum which was inaugurated on March 29, 1954 by the then Indian Vice President Dr. S Radhakrishnan.
Once the palace of maharaja of Jaipur, the National Gallery of Modern Art is a repository of the works of all the great modern Indian artists.
More than 50 stalls were set up for display and sales at the museum lawns by enthusiastic participants from different walks of life who specialise in items such as handicrafts, ceramics, indigenous art, fashion, and so on.
The fiesta is the first of its kind and the audience was captivated by a variety of creative products accessible for purchase at nominal prices. To tickle the taste buds, food stalls will also be available.
This fiesta served as a platform for individuals to showcase their work while also raising exposure and generating interest in locally made, handcrafted, and curated products.
The education and research department of NGMA is constantly working on ideas and projects in order to provide an interactive experience for the visitors so that they can connect more with the museum. NGMA seeks to create more memories of the people with the museum through its engaging and inclusive programmes.
