Bengaluru, August 28, 2020: Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) has announced Call for Artwork, inviting artists and art groups to submit proposals art at Terminal 2 (T2) of Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru (KIAB/ BLR Airport). BLR Airport’s T2 will reflect two themes – Karnataka’s rich heritage and culture and Naurasa – the nine emotions highlighted in Bharata's Natyashastra.

The proposals, invited for specific locations across T2, must be original and not a replica of previous work. An independent advisory panel and BIAL stakeholders will evaluate the proposals.

“As a gateway to new India, at BLR Airport, our aim is to give our travelers a true experience of our State and Country.  Art has the amazing ability to create delight during a passenger’s journey through our Airport, and will provide a bit of wonder to the otherwise mundane act of boarding a flight. This is a great opportunity for artists to showcase their talent at an airport, which provides great visibility to both the artwork as well as artists,” said a BIAL spokesperson.
