Suvaprasanna's Arts Acre: A milestone in the world of culture
Suvaprasanna's Arts Acre, in Kolkata, is a treat for artists from across the globe, who regularly visit this inspiring green space to create art and motivate aspiring young artists , writes Nandini Guha.
The brainchild of the legendary artist, Suvaprasanna, Arts Acre is a complete minicity for artists and art lovers from India and abroad. Situated in the heart of new town Rajarhat, this mega-facility is where maestros from the field of visual arts gather regularly to share their expertise and experience. The Foundation which is the core body behind Arts Acre also sees to it that dance, theatre, music and films add to the vibrant ambience of the cultural space.
The 1,65,000 square feet space is like one endless canvas — with halls, foyers, corridors, greenery and atrium seamlessly flowing into one another. Minutes away from Axis mall and Hidco Bhawan, Arts Acre is strategically positioned to give art lovers "breathing space" while also ensuring that accessibility is not a problem.
