An art street has been thrown open on the service road in front of Eco Park Gate 1 in New Town, where artists can exhibit their works. Hidco is also developing a tribal museum at Eco Urban Village to showcase artefacts, reflecting tribal culture and tradition.
Hidco chairman Debashis Sen said, “A group has been reaching out to artists who can exhibit their paintings, sketches and sculptures there.” Empanelled artists and organisations will get display rights on rotation every few months.
The museum will be built in Santiniketan’s Kalo Bari style. “It is planned to showcase items depicting tribal culture, including musical instruments and artefacts. But it hasn’t been finalized,” Sen said. Artist Rupchand Kundu will direct the museum’s look and Hidco engineers will build it.
