We are delighted to announce Sharmistha Ray’s artistic collaboration with Berklee College of Music as Co-host and Artist for a special Festival of Lights celebration to honor the life and music of A.R. Rahman, the prolific Grammy-winning and Academy Award-winning composer (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and performer at Symphony Hall in Boston on Friday, October 24, 2014 at 8.00pm.
The announcement above is an adaptation of an original work of art that Berklee College of Music commissioned from Sharmistha Ray for the occasion. The original 36 x 36 inch work titled “Maestro” of the musician surrounded by lights is a mixed-media work with charcoal, Swarovski rhinestones, inket print, synthetic polymer paint and resin on canvas. The work takes its cues from the theme “Festival of Lights,” and also evokes the spirit of a prodigy who has touched the lives of millions of people around the world with his inspirational music.
