Calling all the art lovers in Bangalore! The Silicon Valley of the country is all set to get a new museum. The Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) is here and will open to the public soon. The museum strives to make art more accessible and democratised. It will host a variety of art exhibitions that will showcase thought-provoking and engaging art pieces. As of now, the MAP has a collection of around 60,000 art pieces which is only going to grow.
Museum Of Art & Photography Spread Across 5 Storeys
This Museum of Art & Photography is unique since it is the first private museum in a decade in the city of Bangalore. Dedicated to preserving the artistic streak in the city, it aims to make art more democratised and easily accessible.
The structure of the building is as artistic as the art pieces it houses. Spread across five storeys, the building is designed by India’s leading architectural firm. The structure of the museum beautifully marries functionality with accessibility, which are also the ideals behind the museum’s establishment.
The image of museums that most people have in their minds is not exactly pleasant. Most people perceive museums as some boring old place that features weird stuff for people who might be equally weird. However, MAP strives to change that perception of museums.
