St+art India Foundation Adds Color to Brighten Bangalore Metro

Metro stations all over India are mostly drab and uninspiring, so here’s something you all might like 😀

The St+art India Foundation, a non-profit organization working on art projects in public spaces with an aim to make art accessible to a wider audience, just concluded its month long street art festival in Bangalore and added much needed color to the city’s urban landscape. Besides transforming walls facing public streets, its prolific emerging & established artists from different cities & countries also created art interventions through a diverse range of eccentric murals & installations centered in and around Majestic, Cubbon Park & MG Road Metro stations.

Do check out St+art India’s FB page to learn more about their work and see how you can participate in the future. Also see their instagram stream for images showcasing work from across Delhi & Mumbai.

    TMRG, I recently read a report saying that BMRC will invite bids for the construction of the Gottigere – Nagavara line by December this year. Any update about that?
    Thanks.

      We’ll have to wait and see when the bids are invited. Back in Aug, they said they’ll invite bids for the Whitefield extension in September, and so far nothing has happened.

      This is how investigative journalism covering Transport should be. Good to see Naveen (the author) question the deadline put forward by the BMRCL/KA Govt.
