Jamini Roy Institute of Art & Culture (Abhibyakti)

The University has established the Jamini Roy Institute of Art & Culture (Abhibyakti) with the unconditional  donation of the land and a huge collection of art objects ( art, craft, sculpture and paintings) made by the Founder Secretary of the Centre of Art and Craft called Abhibyakti. The project has been encouraged by the Dept of Higher Education and it is at the last stage of the formal official procedure.

It is an invaluable archive of:

    (a) original paintings and print paintings: indigenous as well as contemporary

   (b) Folk Culture: : Multiple forms of art objects of different kinds  from the entire district,  such as clay forms of horse from Beliatore ( Dharmaraj Horse), clay forms of  elephants; masks,      kantha, scroll paintings reflecting evolving modes of indigenous culture.

    (c) collection of indigenous and tribal songs: baul, gambhira, jhumurtushu etc

    (d) Objects of archaeological interest: primitive weapons found in Susunia Hills terracotta  specimens, stone artifacts, old specimens of regional art objects, scroll paintings; old folk objects etc

The local/regional/tribal culture of Jungle Mahal. Bankura is famous for many different art forms like terracotta, clay models, masks, Dashamahavidya cards,  Dokra Art etc. Naturally  it will serve a societal purpose by developing an institute of art and culture where workshops may be held and Certificate/Diploma Courses may be run on different art forms.
