When it comes to art and crafts, Odisha is a treasure trove of delights. Be it Ganjam, Sundargarh or Berhampur, each district has got its own tales of art and excellent craftsmanship. But, how do you get to witness the beauty of various art and craft forms under one roof? The answer lies at city’s new hang-out zone, Kala Bhoomi. Spread over 12.68 acres, this lush green museum houses some amazing art works from remotest corners of the State. Not just for its art pieces, the museum is also creating buzz for various workshops and cultural activities being organised on its premises.
Cut-off from the hum drums of the smart city, this serene property at Pokhariput area lets the visitors get a feel of village life and acquaints them with the tribal culture too.
The museum also hosts free walks for the visitors every Sunday. The Museum is divided into eight galleries, which are classified into two broad sections: handicrafts and handlooms. In the handicraft section, separate galleries are dedicated for terracotta, traditional paintings, stone and wood carvings, metal crafts and natural materials craft. The handloom segment is divided into three sub-sections: pre-weaving, handloom and tribal gallery.
