Open Art Gallery, Jaipur

The 'Open Art Gallery' setup in Jaipur city recently has provided an effective forum to the Tribal Folk Artists of the State to showcase their art to the World. This would not only strengthen their economic condition but also provide patronage to the art and the artists of the state. At the initiative of the Chief Minister Smt. Vasundhara Raje, the open art gallery was inaugurated by Jaipur Nagar Nigam through the 'Must Art Gallery' of Delhi on 2nd October, 2015. Photos and information of tribal folk artists of Rajasthan have been displayed through 40 hoardings, 40 bus shelters and side panels of other 30 buses at different places in the city.
In the first phase the Jogi art of Rajasthan has been displayed. This is an excellent art of the artists of Magriwada of Sirohi. The artists of Jogi art have been called to Jaipur to publicize this art. Display of other folk arts would be taken in the next phase. In the coming phases the general public would also be able to purchase the artifacts of folk artists through exhibitions. A special cell has been constituted under this scheme in Nagar Nigam Jaipur.
