The Arts in Sikh Heritage & Culture

Project/s Description/s

The Sikh Foundation has played a pioneering role in the development of the genre of Sikh art. Today, Sikh art is celebrated at museums worldwide, dozens of books have been published and there is increasing interest by collectors and community support for our artists. But this was not always so- it was as recent as 1975 when the term “Sikh Art” was coined by Dr. Kapany and introduced in the journal “Sikh Sansar” published by the Sikh Foundation. There after the first ever display of Sikh art opened at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco(1992) leading to establishment of the first permanent gallery of Sikh art in 2003. Subsequently the Foundation has supported 7 international exhibits of Sikh art at leading museums all over the world including London, New York, Washington D.C and Toronto. Museums help to put together narratives which help us and our children get answers to our essential explorations of identity. Art is a beautiful way for us to educate ourselves and the world around us. It is a way for us to share our pride in our arts and culture across communities and across the barriers of language, color, race and religion. It is the museums help ensure that our arts and heritage continue to inspire generations to come.
