Learn ancient Japanese ceramic techniques at MOG from 23 April to 26 April.
An artistic display depicting the history of Goa through a medley of artistic works, the Museum of Goa is one of the largest contemporary art spaces of the state. Open to the public since 2015, this museum has been telling Goan stories in a novel and playful manner, through various events such as music concerts, open art classes, workshops, exhibitions and much more. So whenever in this locale, don't miss out on this unique opportunity of knowing the history of the sunshine state at MOG!
For the love of art
Apart from being an art space that showcases contemporary artists of Goa, this three-storeyed structure is host to MOG SUNDAYS- a weekly lecture series by a variety of eminent speakers. Further, the Sculpture Garden located adjacent to the museum building, is home to a few famous works (including 'Carpet of Joy') of Dr Subodh Kerkar, who is also the founder of MOG.
Envisioned as an archive of objects and a laboratory where new ideas are tinkered with, the acronym for Museum of Goa translates to 'love' in Konkani. This museum has been established to nurture love and empathy as tools that guide future generations and in an attempt to actualise this goal, MOG conducts art classes for children every Friday and Saturday.
Museum of Goa is making large strides in its attempt of taking contemporary art to the larger public in myriad intriguing manners. The latest event heading the pedagogical experiment at MOG, is The Raku Party- a workshop where participants can learn the ancient Japanese ceramic technique. Book your tickets here to spend a day with like-minded people as you explore the colourful corridors of this museum.
