In conjunction with the Ackland Art Museum exhibition The Sahmat Collective: Art and Activism in India Since 1989, the Ackland Museum Store presents India Bazaar, an Indian market featuring a wide array of beautifully designed and handcrafted products made in India. Most of the businesses represented in the bazaar are owned by young Indian entrepreneurs whose works, while reflecting their local culture, are redefining the context of Indian design.
Goods in the bazaar range from colorful textiles and jewelry to handcrafted journals and items for the home. All items are for sale, with proceeds supporting the Ackland Art Museum’s exhibition and education programs.
