Street for Artists

Hopefully, we will now have an Artists Lane at the Fest - an idea we have been working on for some time.

It is not easy to convert streets and lanes in Mylapore where life bubbles everyday into a Fest zone.
We need to respect the local people's lives but most have always been accommodating. They love tghe festival mela scene as long as people don't mess around.

So my artist friend Gita and past MFA students like JP and Siva, both regulars at the Fest have worked their contacts and will have at least 12 young artists to display small works of art on Pitchu Pillai Street, just off Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.

Portrait painting of guests will also be done - it is the most indemand thing at the Fest.
