‘Beauty is his footprint showing us where he has passed’
The ART FOR LAND action is a land fundraising action and is entirely non-commercial. All art works have been donated in a
spirit of generous gifting for Auroville’s land. Similarly, donation bids made by buyers are land donations to support a greater
and inspiring purpose, and a shared cause.
ART FOR LAND is dedicated action for raising funds to secure a unified land base for the City of Dawn that is essential for Auroville’s integrity and full manifestation. All proceeds are land donations used for land purchase in Auroville’s Master Plan area.
Artists from Auroville, the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, India and abroad have donated their art works. The works are distributed through a donation auction whereby donors submit their donation offers for specific works of art. The 2017 collection of donated art works is currently on exhibition at Auroville’s Unity Pavilion. Pre-bidding is possible by email via the website artforland.auroville.org or at the Unity Pavilion.
The Art for Land auction will take place on Saturday 25 February from 3 – 6 PM at the Unity Pavilion.
Land donations from Indian donors are eligible for tax exemptions under sections 80 G and 35(i)(iii). Land donations from Foreign donors of countries with tax-exempt possibilities must be sent via the AVI center of the country where the donor is a taxpayer.
