GUWAHATI, Nov18: Born in 1992, Indian Art History Congress is preparing for its silver jubilee celebration in December.

Established with an aim to study the variegated Indian art forms and to provide a platform to scholars and students alike, engaged in the study of art history, past and present Indian Art History Congress will celebrate its 25 years in the presence of Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi, Chief Minister Sarbanda Sonowal and other distinguished persolities on December 22, 2017 at Lakhiram Baruah Sadan, Guwahati.

Speaking to this reporter, Indian Art History Congress chairman Prof. RD Choudhury said, “I feel the pain to say that we’re have been under an acute fund crisis to celebrate the silver jubilee. There are no government grants for the event. However, we have been offered help by certain philanthropic organizations like Sukreshwar Devalaya , Panduth Devalaya and Srimanta Sankardeva Kalakshetra. Daring all such circumstances, we’re ready to celebrate the silver jubilee of Indian Art Society Congress.”

The programme will be iugurated by the Governor and the keynote address will be given by Art Historian of Cheni R gaswami and the general president of the programme will be Chancellor of Deccan College, AP, Jamkhedkar. The celebration will include a conference on topics – Art of Eastern India and Art of Masks: In Social, Cultural, and Religious Contexts.

Choudhury said that after the semir the guests would be taken to visit Barduwa and Ali Pukhuri. He said the guests would also make visit to the Regiol Science Museum. However, since the museum is in a deplorable state to greet tourists, he is disturbed about that. He lamented that even after Chief Minister’s announcement to make it a tourist destition, nothing tangible has been done till date. There is no publication of book to even show to the guests, the canteen is too small to accommodate too many visitors at the same time and the gallery of tural history is half constructed.
