During my stay at Bangalore, I visited a number of places there. Bangalore is my all-time favorite destination as it offers a wide range of flora and fauna accompanied with an ample weather. Being a student I often have a busy life. But I always take some time out to fulfill my desires of visiting new places. Bangalore is known for its urban lifestyle and modernized buildings. The place is the central hub for technology. But amidst all such modernization, there lies some cultural part in Bangalore that often drags adventure freaks like me to discover a new part within self. The Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath is one such place which holds the state’s finest art and culture. I had heard a lot about this place and about its charisma. So during my visit to Bangalore in the last winters, I decided to pay a visit to the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath.
The Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath is an art institution and an organization which is located in the heart of Bangalore. The Parishath is well known for holding exhibitions and cultural events in the state as well as national level. The organization was upgraded to the level of an art center in the year 1966 after the merger of Nanjunda Rao’s Chitrakala Vidyalaya. The famous paintings from Mysore are displayed in the art gallery which attracts a huge mass of visitors from all over the world. With a little more investigation, I discovered that surveys and research led to the growth of the organization to an international level. Moreover the addition of various galleries and graphic studio made it a full-fledged complex.
I went round the corners of the building where I also found a sculpture gallery with magnanimous sculptures preserved in it. There is an open-air theatre in the Parishath which piles to the needs of artists. I had heard about the cultural event called Chitra Santhe, or more commonly known as Art Bazaar in which variety of cultural and traditional items are sold to the public.
My visit to the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath gave me good experiences which I will cherish for a long time.
