Art exhibition ‘Meraki’ was inaugurated at Maharaja Sawai Man Singh (MSMS) II Museum at City Palace by Former Head, Department of Painting, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur, Mr. Shabbir Hasan Quazi. Over 100 children presented various forms of artwork and photography at the exhibition. ‘Meraki’ is being held in collaboration with Delhi Public School (DPS), Jaipur.
On the occasion, Mr. Quazi said that the exhibition is a wonderful display of innovative artwork that displays the extreme skill and talent of the students. More children need to focus on creating original pieces of artwork. They may borrow concepts from existing art forms for inspiration but it is important to create your own art form.

She said that the students have created a variety of commercial artwork as well which is beyond imagination for their age. She further informed that the exhibition will be on till 25 November.
