Museum Rudana Celebrates its 8th Anniversary

Festivities Include Exhibition and Awards to 4 Leading Artists.


Museum Rudana Celebrates its 8th Anniversary Museum Rudana - a priceless repository of Indonesian art was founded by Mr. Nyoman Rudana eight years ago in the Peliatan Community, near Ubud. To celebrate this milestone and the Museum's continuing commitment to the promotion of art, the Museum Rudana is holding a month-long exhibition by four senior artists: the Indonesian-based Srihadi Soedarsono; Bali's own I Nyoman Gunarsa and Made Winanta; and the Singapore artist Kumari Nahappan.

The four, selected by Mr. Rudana for their individual contributions to the world of art, were honored by the presentation of the inaugural Ksatria Art Award 2004 presented to the artists at the opening of a month-long exhibition of their works on August 8, 2004.

The actual award, symbolizing the gallantry and stewardship implied in the Sanskrit derivations of the word Ksatria, is a trophy fashioned by Ruma Jewelry based on silver arrow inlaid with gold and yellow sapphires. According to Mr. Rudana, the trophy symbolizes the passion for humanity and creative freedom embodied in the decade's long artistic journey of the four recipients.

"Beauty in ethics and aesthetics serve the good of the world and not destruction."

Srihadi Soedarsono

"God gave us the spirit and the strength of the intellect: why we do not try to use them as source for our creative force in order to give it to our beloved world."

I Nyoman Gunarsa

"I have duties as an artist. It is thinking about art, our society, our natural environment, the place of mankind in cosmos."

Made Wianta

"All life, all matter, all being originates in a single vibration."

Kumari Nahappan

The exhibition by the 4 newly knighted artists will run at the Museum Rudana through September 8, 2004.

For more information call the Museum at ++62-(0)361-975779.
