Art for Land

Auroville Art ServiceART FOR LAND  is a non-commercial land-fundraising action to help secure a unified and  harmonious land-base for the City of Dawn. All art works have been donated in the spirit of generous gifting by the artists. In an action of flowing solidarity, donors then make a bid for the artwork of their choice. All proceeds are land donations and are used for securing still-missing plots in Auroville’s Master Plan area via the Acres for Auroville campaign.

Art for Land is a collaboration of the Unity Pavilion and the Auroville Art Service with Acres for Auroville. Please visit our dedicated Art For Land website and the page in the “Securing the Land” section.

Auroville Art ServiceArt for Land’s collected works are a stunning collection of creations in all media by artists from Auroville, the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, friends in India and the AVI centers abroad.  Some works from an earlier time have been seen and touched by The Mother. Many of the artists enjoy wide recognition as highlighted in a feature article reported by “The Hindu”.

Art for Land is a magnificent showcase for the Auroville’s great creativity and that of friends – and it’s all to benefit THE LAND!

Art For Land Year 3 will be held at Auroville’s Unity Pavilion from January 1st 2018 – February 15th. The 6-week-long exhibition of the works will again be complemented by an in-parallel fundraising sale of donated rare photographs of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo.

The continually-enlarged online gallery of our ever-growing and changing collection is available for viewing, along with more information at  Ongoing periodic updates on exhibition specifics and related events can also be found at

Shipping of works from Auroville is managed by donors and at the donor’s expense. Tax exemptions are possible depending on your country.

We warmly invite interested artists to collaborate and donate works for the land. Please contact Jaya, Rema, or Devasmita at (91) 413 2623576 or
