'The main objective of the exhibition is to exhibit the skill of local photographers and, in a way, to motivate the local youths.' Co-founder of Music house veteran flutist Raman Maharjan told OurKirtipur.
In the event, apart from the photo exhibition, a wall mosaic of mosaic artist from Switzerland Monica Leithner was also displayed. The art, inaugurated by co-founder of Music House Thomas Bertschi -- also a Swiss national -- used only recycled materials. The tiles, pebbles and glass used in the mosaic created a beautiful blend of colors and reflection.
In the end of the program, Manda: band had their musical performance.
'Plato had once said, music and colors to the mind are as light and air to the body. Today's exhibition is a beautiful example.' Bertschi said.
