Diwan Manna, President, Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi
Top of the wish-list: A Cloud Gate for Chandigarh on the lines of the one in Chicago.
Diwan Manna, President, Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi has more of a plan than a wish-list for City Beautiful in 2019. “It is time to ask for a handsome gift for the city, which will further help generate more income. Rock garden alone attracts approximately one lakh visitors a month, whereas much talked about Capitol Complex with its recently acquired World Heritage Site tag, may not be getting more than 2,000 in the same period. It’s time we think these things through.” He adds, “City has just five to six buildings created by Corbusier, therefore I’d like to ask for public artworks of a monumental scale that could acquire iconic status such as Cloud Gate by India-born UK artist Anish Kapoor in Chicago.”
