Win passes to see a dazzling show
Maharaja: The Splendour of India’s Royal Courts is truly a magnificent exhibit. If you have any interest in India, world history, beautifully created works of art or expertly curated large exhibitions, you can’t miss this one. It’s all of these things, plus a very good time out. You can read my blog all about the exhibit here, and see pictures of some of the gorgeous treasures: Maharaja: The Splendour of India’s Royal Courts dazzles visitors.
To win passes to the Art Gallery of Ontario exhibit in Toronto, or a grand prize pack that includes a pass and the show’s catalogue, (total value more than $60) read on for entry details.
The Art Gallery of Ontario exhibit runs from November 20, 2010 until April s, 2011. It features more than 200 objects made by and for the maharajas — great kings — of India, from the 17th century to 1947, when India declared independence, became a secular democracy and abolished the feudal power of the maharajas.
This is a major show for the Art Gallery of Ontario in more ways than one. It opened with a $1,000 a plate gala dinner; was the recipient of the gallery’s largest donation to date; and is reaching out to the community like never before. In fact, the large donation from three major Canadian corporations is making it possible for the AGO to let people under the age of 25 in for free. Yes, you heard that right: if you are under 25 years old you get in for free. There are also lots of cultural events related to the show taking place throughout the run. Check the Art Gallery of Ontario website and the Art Matters blog for details.
