A total of 15 artists from various walks of life have been brought together by Tata Steel in the second edition of ‘Art-In-Industry’, thereby facilitating expression of thought as well as cross-cultural learning through the medium of oil and canvas. Eminent artists like Mr R B Bhaskaran, Mr Vrindavan Solanki, Mr Baldev Gambhir and a host of renowned Odia artists will nurture and encourage the budding talents participating in the event. Leading Odiya painter Mr Manash Jena is the curator of this event.

The camp timings are from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm. The paintings will be displayed in an exhibition at the venue in the evening of 17th Feb 2018, following which the participating artists will be felicitated in the closing ceremony. In the run-up to the event, Tata Steel is also conducting a painting competition among the art college students of Odisha at the venue over the three days.

We welcome the artists who have come to participate in the camp and put their best skills forward. There is no way technology can duplicate creativity, therefore all of us need to make a huge effort to make sure that the future generation continue to engage and expand their horizon and take a break from technology. I am very proud that Tata Steel has been conducting the Art-In-Industry event for so many years and is doing it for the second time in Bhubaneswar. We are very fortunate to have some eminent artists in the event this year”, said Mrs Ruchi Narendran.

As a citizen of Odisha, I am very proud to be a part of Tata Steel’s association with the culture of the state. It gives us immense pleasure to host such renowned artists and budding talents under one roof. Art, in association with the industry, will give the local artists an opportunity to share knowledge and explore new horizons”, said Mr Arun Misra, Vice President, Project Gopalpur, Tata Steel and MD Tata Steel SEZ.

Tata Steel Art-In-Industry brings artists from across the country together who have cultivated their unique style of artistic expressions rather than following established norms. We welcome all the art connoisseurs and artists to come and experience this celebration of cultural diversity. Art-in-Industry 2018 at Bhubaneswar promises to be even more engaging as we bring before you the artistic genius from across the country”, said, Mr Chanakya Chaudhary, Group Director, Corporate Communication & Regulatory Affairs, Tata Steel.
