Sikhpoint.com is proud to announce the installation of three original
drawings of Indiana artist Kanwal Prakash (KP) Singh in The Sikh
Heritage Gallery at The Natural History Museum, Smithsonian Institution,
Washington, D.C. The pen & ink drawings of Sri Bangla Sahib,
New Delhi, Sri Darbar Sahib, Amritsar, and Sri Kesh Garh Sahib,
Anandpur Sahib, India were featured in the 2007 Sikhpoint.com Interfaith
Calendar and will be on display at The Smithsonian through the end
of September. These sacred landmarks are associated with the lives
and times of Sikh Gurus and deeply intertwined with Sikh history,
culture, and traditions.
Born in India, Kanwal Prakash (KP) Singh came to the United States
in 1965 for higher studies. He has made Indianapolis his home since
1967. KP was educated in India (B.A. from Punjab University; Bachelor
of Architecture and Master of Technology: Regional Planning from
I.I.T. Kharagpur) and the United States (Master of City Planning
from the University of Michigan).
KP has been a tireless advocate and supporter of historic preservation,
cultural diversity, and the importance of arts to life and human
spirit. KP considers community service as a major focus and commitment
of his Sikh faith and as a civic responsibility. Over the years,
he has served as a volunteer on many committees and events. He is
a founding member of the International Center of Indianapolis.
K.P. Singh Designs, founded in 1972, specializes in fine arts.
KP’s distinctive, finely executed pen and ink drawings of
historic architecture and monuments in India, Europe, USA, and other
places reflect the combined skills of an architect, artist, historian,
and an educator. His art and advocacy have continued to heighten
our awareness of the special place of significant buildings and
sites in the visual, cultural, and spiritual fabric of our communities.
KP’s drawings of architectural landmarks: Indiana courthouses,
college campuses and other historic sites are present at many fundraising
events. His artwork is in many public and private collections in
the USA and around the world.
KP’s art and words are a constant reminder of his passion
and commitment to preservation and celebration of our unique and
outstanding architectural, artistic, and cultural treasures. KP
believes that they are the collective heritage of mankind. KP is
a guest writer for many ethnic publications.
