Batting for Change

3Sanjay Bhattarcharya’s Krishna inspiration

On March 29, 15 leading artists came together to create an installation of bats, which was on display at various public spaces in the city. "It's a shared platform for cricket and art and we wanted it to reach out to a wider audience," says Archana Bahl Sapra, who curated the exhibition of these bats with Pooja Bahri. Called "Batting for Art", the exhibition was a collaboration of Arts for All and Delhi Daredevils. Artist Sanjay Bhattarcharya says, "Any surface is becoming a plane for art, so why not cricket bats? I chose Krishna as a theme for my painting, because he is the biggest player." Today, the bats will be auctioned at the ITC Maurya to raise funds for the Arts For All Residency Programme.
