Happy Vinayaka Chavithi! As usual I get news of anything festive Indian first from Rb. 

This August in Denver, Colorado, at Denver art museum I got to see the exhibit – "Ganesha, The playful protector". This exhibit is going to be kept open until January, but, whoever is not going to Denver, can see the sculptures/images quite clearly on the net and read some related articles too.

Besides seeing 600-700 B.C., Cambodian Ganesha sculpture, the center piece, I saw a small movie on how Ganesha clay statues of various sizes are made, now a days in India. How the colors are applied, before they go into local markets around festival time, the celebrations and how Ganesha's statue is immersed in waters at the end of festivities.

I also liked seeing another exhibit –"Like a Hammer" (Jeffrey Gibson) - of Native American art in Denver art museum. Glad I was able to catch it, because that exhibit was ending in just couple of days.  His works - the colors and the beads on punch bags, and wall hangings  are quite eye-catching.   

Have fun!
