Chitra Ramanathan, Indiana
I am a mid career contemporary Indian American woman artist/educator. I have taught courses and workshops Acrylics and Mixed-media Painting, my choice media for my original paintings, at the Indianapolis Art Center. My body of thematic paintings portray happiness as a visual entity with a "formless form", a phrase I coined to describe my concept. Several pieces from this series have been acquired by individual and corporate collections including donation to educational institutions.
I have completed site-specific public art projects to organizations such as the MGM Mirage. Donations of my work towards charity benefit auctions include the Madame C.J.Walker Theater Center's 80th Anniversary in 2006, and a custom painting based on the 1979 Hollywood film "Breaking Away for the Indianapolis International Film Festival 2008.
I receive a Bachelors degree in Painting and M.B.A from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
I would be happy to donate my work to benefit the Clinton Foundation.
