Works of art in public places should represent the relentless spiral of the energies of the people.The public space with which a passer by will identify has to be tinged with some true beauty, which is another name of divinity.


Work should represent the innermost thoughts and feelings of some of its most lively minds. The Indian artistic vision all highly imaginative concepts attain to pinnacles of sensuousness as did earlier art, still others are masculine, robust, even rugged in nuance ; formal experiments being very many .
So for our purposes the best of the works for public places will have to be rendered in stone, and they will have to treat their material in time honoured, though not slavish ways. The best of the new works thus pursue a dialogue about the meaning of being sculpture itself, though the lives of their creators are lived against the social, economic and cultural background. City be rich with those signs and symbols that rise above divisions, partisan passions or in abject materialism to some higher vision, pure forms, expressive surfaces, as well as the role of magic and metamorphosis in the use of materials.


NDMC proposes to erect three dimensional pieces of Public Art at
various traffic junctions, roundabout, garden and other public spaces.
It invites Expression of interest for creation of new & innovative works
of Art from artists to send their conceptual drawing with details of
space selected, material to be used, size, estimated cost .
