The following night, Krishnapriya and Narendran's art was made open to the public, and community members from UPenn and Germantown showed up in support. Over the course of the evening more than 120 people came out to see the exhibition and about 20 contributed scar stories to the artists' film project being shot on site.
The South Asia Center would like to give a big thank you to Krishnapriya and Narendran for participating in this flagship program. Through this initiative we were able to send four students to Chennai to participate in an artist residency, invited two Indian artists to the US, organized two art exhibitions and two public talks that attracted more than 300 members of the public and conducted seven educational workshops serving more than two 200 students!
