The Indo American Forum of Fort Bend recently collaborated with the City of Sugar Land as a part of FotoFest 2018 Biennial Participating Space to kick off the six-week-long FotoFest exhibits around Houston, whose theme this year is India.

To kick off the FotoFest exhibits highlighting India, the Indo American Forum curated an evening to experience the multifaceted culture of India — through the camera lens — as well as a first-ever exhibit in Sugar Land of the enchanting fabrics of India entitled The Fabrics of India. The glorious fabrics accompanied the ongoing exhibition of community photographs entitled Faces, Spaces and Places of India.

The opening reception featuring photography, fabrics and a performance was held Wednesday, March 7th at the new Sugar Land Heritage Museum & Visitor Center. In addition to The Fabrics of India exhibit, the event featured instrumental Indian classical music, dance and food, along with photographs by local community members. The free event was open to the community.
