It was so interesting to view slides of contemporary sculpture installation, which really brought participants to the concepts. Artists were given an opportunity to express their feelings on the works of their own to prove the concepts being imparted.

Exhibition on the 16th of November 2002 the Visual Arts Council organized an art exhibition. The exhibition was so interesting since it had artworks of unique concepts.
