To attain these goals Sanskriti Pratishthan has established on its campus three museums namely • The Museum of Everyday Art of India •The Museum of Indian Terracotta •The Museum of Indian Textiles Significance of the museums : Aims objectives • The three museums preserve and present the indigenous heritage. • Museums the world over are also widening their scope. They have evolved from being mere repositories of objects and places of expert knowledge creation into acting as dynamic learning centres and agents of contemporary cultural production and values. • In this spirit the Sanskriti Museums strive to play a pro-active role in the dissemination of new knowledge the promotion of informed debate and the creation of awareness amongst children students artists scholars designers and the interested public alike. Each of the three museums has a different approach towards the collection process. Sanskriti’s museums are committed to preserving and nurturing the creative vitality of Indian culture. The collection of the three museums conceptualised and curated by Dr. Jyotindra Jain embodies and reflects this vision.

A resource for Antiquity Preservation Archaeology Conservation Monuments HeritageTourism and Art Industry The Museum of Everyday Art The Museum of Everyday Art was established in 1984 to create an environment for the preservation of India’s heritage and to display objects that demonstrate excellence in craftsmanship and conceptual innovation be it in design or functionality. The objects of the Everyday Art Museum have been collected over the past 40 years – i.e. from the 1970s onwards – by Shri O.P. Jain. Objects of everyday life connected with the manners and customs beliefs and practices of the urban and rural populations of India are displayed in the Sanskriti Museum of Everyday Art. Classified into 16 sections the collection includes folk and tribal sacred images accessories for rituals lamps incense-burners writing materials women’s toiletries weights and measures ovens and tongs locks and latches apparatus for opium and cannabis vessels children’s accessories and kitchen utensils. The collection is displayed with the appropriate accompanying captions and explanatory texts. Today the Museum has grown to become a unique example of its kind displaying objects that most beautifully combine aesthetic form and utilitarian function. The collection has been reasonably well documented and research on the various technical and cultural aspects of each object is under way. The collection is organized in terms of function - i.e. toys kitchen implements etc. - that reflected functions undertaken throughout the life of a person - childhood adulthood and old age - and thus their presentation also follows this cycle of life. Creativity and culture permeate every aspects of Indian life. In a rapidly changing traditional society household objects reflect centuries of collective wisdom. The practical and innovative objects on display exemplify the exuberant imagination and aesthetic creativity of craftspersons from all over India. The Museum of Indian Terracotta The Sanskriti Museum of Indian Terracotta was established in 1993 as a systematic attempt to comprehend the rich living traditions of this art form in India. India has a variety of living traditions of pottery and formative terracotta that are likely to become extinct with the passage of time. Noticing that there is not a single museum in the country that has systematically collected representative examples of these living traditions Sanskriti made a pioneering endeavour to set up a museum of contemporary living traditions of Indian Terracotta Art exhibiting all the major types of the art from all over India. The meanderingly proceeding mud-and-thatch structures display the classified collection along with detailed texts panels and individual captions. The Museum of Indian Terracotta displays 2000 exuberant forms and sophisticated shapes representing the living tradition of Indian terracotta from various parts of the country e.g West Bengal MP UP Orrissa Jharkand Bihar Delhi the North East Gujarat Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan. A special gallery has been installed in the museum to provide a historical perspective to the ancient tradition of terracotta art through photographs. The museum also provides a platform for exchange of ideas and collaboration between master craftspersons and artists in residence at Sanskriti Kendra. Proudly Presented By- BMW

The unique feature of this collection is that it stems from one individual’s aesthetic and cultural vision which makes it a harmonious unified whole. The museum has a collection of more than 400 textiles representing various styles and techniques of rich Indian Textile tradition e.g. embroidery block printing tie dye resist dye chain stitched etc. The Museum intends to serve as a resource for the study of Indian textile traditions. It moves away from the ‘masterpiece’ culture as much as from creating an exhaustive inventory of textile genres as is often the case with many museums of this kind. Its objective is to display representative examples of selected traditions of Indian textiles and to create a pool of information around these that will eventually serve as an academic resource for study and research. Sanskriti’s textile collection encompasses Indian textiles made from the 19th century onwards. This small but fine collection contains some of the country’s best examples of patola bandhani embroideries kalamkari appliqué work brocades gota work etc. Other Activities of the Museums: Many educational activities workshops performances exhibition lectures and demonstration are organized by the Sanskriti Museums on the basis of their collections. Educational activities are focused on both adults and children which includes a guided tour of the three museums various workshops on pottery tribal and folk painting block printing on textiles etc. The workshops aim to sensitize the participants about the rich culture and heritage of the country and made aware of the importance of conserving and transmitting it. Lecture series interactive sessions and symposia on the subjects of photography textiles terracotta and art are also conducted around the museums. The museum also organizes workshops on various issues in association with different NGOs and other organizations. The museums have a commitment to promote the craft of India so it organizes different types of craft promotional activities throughout the year. Interactive sessions with artisans and craftspersons are encouraged by Sanskriti based on the ethos of the collections which are on display across the three museums. Regular workshops and events are held on every Sunday in the museum premises. for updates and news about the museum events stay connected in or write to:: Proudly Presented By- BMW

Asim after studying architecture made use of his building skills to make a difference in society by utilising space and interfering with it creatively so as to play with audience’s perception. He perfectly displays how playing with public space and employing art in it can engage people at a different level and also make a difference in society by working for a cause. His 2011 project on Yamuna where he worked for the cause of saving the river became quite popular. Asim’s works mainly highlights the exploitation of situations resources and urban spaces to create an impact. Artist Of The Month ASIM WAQIF If you want us to cover your art. Contact-
