Freedom in art reflects freedom in society. And now as art has come forward to the rescue of social causes, the bonding between them stands as the most elegant and meaningful one.
The all-time active and dedicated animal rights activist Maneka Gandhi has been collaborating with prominent artists and hosting exhibition-cum-sales to raise funds for animal protection and care. Members of People for Animals(PFA) have also been cooperating in all possible ways. Even the press and other like minded people and organisation like some veterans, Amul and RWITC have been very supportive.
These sales have been held every year for the past 20 years. The lithographic sale held last year in July, 2012 had earned lot of attraction of the Mumbaikars and proved to be very successful in its purpose. The economic prices and the beautiful art work on household things like carpets and mugs offer a great opportunity to grab by the young people setting their new houses at affordable rates.
These sales serve the dual purpose of spreading awareness about the plight of animals as well as serves the desire of the people to buy authentic and unique goods.These genuine art collections definitely owe great appreciation for marrying art and social causes together for a blessed purpose.
