Kala Bhavan is the Fine Arts department of the Viswa Bharati University established by Ravindranath Tagore. It celebrated 100 years of its existence in 2019. It has now two main sections- the Kala Bhavan and the SANGEET Bhavan. Asit Kumar Haldar took over as its first head. The four giants associated with the Kala Bhavan were Ravindranath Tagore, Nand Lal Bose, Ramkinkar Baij and Benode Bihari MUKHERJEE. Thousands of art pieces are on display at the Kala Bhavan and include works of the giants. It’s an open air museum where most pieces are on display. University departments, student hostels as well as the art pieces of the de facto museum co exist. We saw the now famous works of Ramkinker Baij namely the Santhal Family, Gandhi at Salt March etc., paintings of Nand Lal Bose works of Benode Behari MUKHERJEE. Kala Bhavan also a panorama of Indian art. It’s a must see place in Shantiniketan

This place doesn’t need any demarcation. The buildings are painted with modern art, some illegible scribblings too. Probably the students try to convey their high level thoughts through these works of art. A couple of students were even making portraits of other students, some busy paintings pottery cups. One doesn’t need to enter the classrooms as the talent of these students aren’t confined in 4 walls.

During the visit within the Viswabharati campus, the most interesting sight would be the Kala Bhavana and around area ,no body should miss.Though visitors are not allowed within any buildings or room, there are enough paintings on the walls and sculptures scattered on the ground ,many of them by famous artists,.Only for these artistic creations the Santiniketan /Viswabharati tour is worth . One can have photographs and should. There is a canteen (only ) in this area for the students which is a relief to visitors too.
