R.K.LAXMAN Museum of Art is a vision of our Hon. Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modiji. The Government of Maharashtra took up the project under the guidelines of Hon. Shri. Modiji. The Pune Municipal Corporation undertook the responsibility to execute the project. They identified a plot in Balewadi, Pune and started the infrastructure work of the museum.

The architectural design of the museum was assigned to UNITECTURE, a design consultancy firm. They started the work in the year 2015 and completed in 2020. The architectural layout was for having a temporary exhibition centre, hall of fame, exhibits of Laxman’s cartoon and a cafeteria. The design of the R.K.Laxman museum has been assigned to Laxman’s family.

 

We took up this project in the year 2020 after all the due diligence got completed. Due to Covid 19 there was a delay for almost 8 months, but that did not hamper our spirits. We utilized that precious time to plan, strategise, sign up with the required departments and of course digitize all the art works of Laxman.

 

This is a project very close to my heart, doing something for our dear father who has left a huge legacy behind through his 80 years contribution, self-made with just one clear focus—‘SERVE THE COMMON MAN’

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

R.K.LAXMAN MUSEUM OF ART undoubtedly requires recognition. But all this could not have been possible without the support of Government bodies, departments from various institutions, the entire team in charge of the project and of course the generous sponsors that came together equally excited and spirited about the project.

I take this opportunity to express my gratitude and thank each and every individual, institution and organisation that commissioned

Laxman to showcase his talents and to convey valuable messages through his cartoons. Laxman was proud and happy to be associated with one and all.
