ART CURATED SHOW
Delhi Public School Patna organized an Art curated show in which teachers exhibited 6000 paintings of students from Class1 to V. The curated show was held from March 26, 2019 to March 28, 2019. March 26th, 2019 was a pleasant and cheerful day which marked the opening of a spectacular Art Curated show “Wings to fly…to think, believe and express!” It was held in the Junior Wing premises of Delhi Public School Patna at 8:00 a.m. This was the third year of the curated show held in school by children. The sub themes for the current show were Traditional Landscape, Faces and Traces, Dreams and Desires and Gond Art. Various areas of the Junior Wing campus were allotted for the display of the artworks created by the students from Classes I to V. The show catered to a large number of audiences which was not only open to the parents but also to the people from the art community as well as all walks of life. The viewers not only appreciated the show in words but also penned down their views in the form of feedback.
The student curators of Class II and III were allotted different subtheme areas where they were guiding and explaining the displayed artworks to the audiences. The first to begin with was the Traditional Landscape where the artworks were displayed in the Plaza. The artworks were depicting the advancement not only in the ground plan but also the technology to map the area and find locations easily which wasn’t possible centuries back. The fascination and ambition of children were showcased through the topic Dreams and Desires which subsumed the heavenly bodies in midst of the artwork showcased.
The subtheme Faces and Traces displayed in the Multipurpose Hall explained that the face is just a picture of the mind with eyes as its interpreter as beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. A person’s face is said to be a mirror of their thoughts because it reveals the personality and reflects the very soul. In the Gond Art area, the curators not only displayed the artworks by the students but also performed live tribal dance based on the environment. This added dazzle and mesmerized the audience. Not to forget the Close to my Heart corner, this struck the chord of the observers.
