On the weekend of 2nd and 3rd April 2011, I was invited to the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA to perform a Rangoli, as part of Sensational India!, a weekend of creative activities celebrating the arts and culture of India.
Two separate designs were provided for children interested in participating in rangoli making.
The Rangoli design was a celebration of springtime. It included around 8-10 colours, took 10hrs to complete and was 6 x 6ft in size.
On this occasion the design was drawn out onto fabric first, making its demolition a little easier.
