Rotating Exhibit Network

The Rotating Exhibit Network (REN) is a TAI program that provides FREE exhibit resources for libraries, historical societies, museums, galleries, CVBs, and other public venues throughout Indiana. Many of the artists featured in the REN are also listed in the TAI Public Program Handbook, a resource for institutions to contact these artists directly and hold performances, demonstrations, or presentations about their life, work, and art.

Each exhibit, a free-standing 3 by 7 foot panel, features engaging photographs and bold texts describing traditional expressions from various parts of the state.

    Hi
    I am student of Manjeet Singh, the Indian Music teacher you have covered in TAI. I would like to request the write up and the photo you took for TAI on him, so I can include it to his website, on which I am working.
    For reference you can contact him at 317 435 8410
    Thank you!
