MoS Home inaugurates art gallery to honour Divyang people’s art

Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy on Monday inaugurated an Art Gallery named ‘Not Just Art’ at UNESCO Cluster House in the national capital.

The Art Gallery has visual art done by artists with disability who came from all across India to showcase their talent with colour and form. The gallery will be open for public viewing on Nov 5, 6 & 7 from 0900 hrs to 1700 hrs.

To honour the talent of artists, the 1st edition of ‘Discovering Ability’ Art Awards was also organised by the gallery, in association with UNESCO and HSBC. The award aims to celebrate the artistic abilities of persons with disability, who have hitherto remained largely unrecognised talent pool. This will help them to express in colour.
