Quote by Tarun Rai, CEO, Worldwide Media
“The Good Homes for Art initiative is our attempt to take Art mainstream. The idea is to take art out of galleries and to the people and hopefully into their homes. We want people to engage with art and artists. This is the second year of this initiative and so far it has been in Mumbai. We now plan to take it to other cities in India.”

“The whole point of our endeavor is to blur the conscious boundaries and take art out of the galleries, to the people. GoodHomes would like to be the catalyst that facilitates an open dialogue between art and its observers… age, caste, class no bar!”
