Now Platform No 6 of Bhubaneswar Railway Station has been converted into an Art Station and the whole wall is painted with beautiful paintings by 30 young artists of Odisha.
The young team of artists led by Satyabhama Majhi comprised students of BK College of Art, Utkal University of Culture and freelancers.
The paintings were on the theme of “Gateway to Odisha” and each of the 13 panels depicted elements that different districts are famous for, whether it is natural or artistic creation.
CHECK: Odisha gets Rs 4682 crore in Railway Budget 2016-17
This has been organized by Bakul Foundation, East Coast Railways and Lions Club. There are also plans to paint the staircases as well as ceilings and develop the station into a creative space.
So with fingers crossed let us hope that this noble endeavor is not spoiled and Bhubaneswar Railway Station becomes the Art station of the smart city. This will be the very apt place for a great selfie for sure!
