INSTALLATION OF THREE K.P. SINGH ORIGINAL DRAWINGS FROM THE SIKHPOINT.COM COLLECTION AT THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION’S SIKH HERITAGE GALLERY IN WASHINGTON, D.C. 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 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.
