Expressions of care

An endeavour by students of architecture to raise funds for those hit by the tsunami



Paintings for a cause

Students of the Department of Architecture, College of Engineering, Thiruvananthapuram (CET), will organise an exhibition of paintings to collect funds for those affected by the tsunami.

Called `Expressions,' this exhibition is being held in connection with the college day celebrations on February 11.

The first art exhibition being organised on the CET campus is also an attempt to prove that architecture students can not only design living spaces but can also aesthetically express the magic of colours and lines on canvas.

The core team

The art exhibition is the culmination of a mammoth effort by some final- year students to bring together all the students to give them an opportunity to encourage their artistic abilities and to promote a social cause. "This is our chance to do what we can for the tsunami victims," says Sugith G.S., a third-year architecture student. Vinu Samuel, Sujith and Bindu P form the core team that worked to make the exhibition a reality.

The students of the Department of Architecture have always been in the forefront to design various stages for `Dhwani,' an inter-collegiate arts festival of CET, for four consecutive years. The design team include Vinu Samuel, Prabeen S, Jose Benoy, Rejin and Shahi Hussain.

`Expressions' brings together the impressionist works of students who have depicted the plight of those whose lives were destroyed by the tsunami. Death, destruction, pain and penury are some of the themes.

"A brave new experiment by the students," says P.S. Abraham, Head of the Department of Architecture, CET.
