Event postponed. Due to the ANNUAL AIDS Walk & Run event scheduled on September 28, we expect road closures in the Balboa Park Area which will cause major challenges in parking and accessing the Museum for this event. The program has been postponed to a later date to be determined.

Raja Ravi Varma (1848–1906) is one of the greatest painters in the history of Indian art and the pioneer of “modern” Indian art. His work, which fuses European techniques with Indian subjects, was known and coveted world-wide, and he was notable also for making his art available to the public through affordable lithographs. Sushumna Kannan, adjunct faculty at San Diego State University, discusses the life and art of Raja Ravi Varma.
