About the Museum
The Jehangir Art Gallery is a leading art museum in Mumbai that highlights contemporary Indian art. It was founded in 1952 thanks to donations from Sir Cowasji Jehangir and strives to provide exhibitions by artists in a multitude of media, including painting, sculpting, printmaking, ceramics, photography and weaving. It also hosts lectures, workshops and other educational programming so that it is a platform for aspiring artists and those interested in the arts.
