PAINTING IS MY EVERYTHING

ART FROM INDIA’S MITHILA REGION
SEP 7 — DEC 30, 2018

One of a kind Piano handpainted by Artist Nupur Nishith in the motifs of Mithila / Madhubani  Paintings, folk art from India, for Sing for Hope, New York, USA is on display at Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, USA.

The piano is in the museum in conjunction with the exhibition Painting Is My Everything: Art from India’s Mithila Region. Nishith, a New Jersey–based artist who was born in the Mithila region in India, decorated the piano with motifs traditional in Mithila art, including birds, animals, flowers, leaves and an image of the earth goddess. We hope you will take advantage of this unique opportunity to strike a key or give an impromptu concert on this extraordinary piano.

While you are here, be sure to check out artwork by Nishith on sale in the museum store.
