VIDEO: Inaugurating the 2014 Art Exhibits at MOSA (May 18)

The prospect of inaugurating the 2014 art exhibits at MOSA was outstanding having accomplished artists as Shobha Broota, Raghupati Bhat, and Poosapati Parameshwar Raju.  MOSA’s overal goal is to bridge the cultural divide between India and Europe and between material and spiritual life. Art is a perfect medium to do so, and we hope that many Europeans will discover the excellent Indian artists who try to convey a spiritual message. We are convinced that MOSA’s visitors will come to appreciate and enjoy the currently exhibited work of all three artists.
