The exhibition is free for the public and open through this Saturday at the Punjabi Cultural Center, located at 2125 N. Barton Ave. in Fresno.
An art show highlighting the history of Sikh soldiers opened earlier this week in Fresno for a brief display that ends Saturday.
According to a news release from the center, Singh always had a passion for art.
Singh is influenced by religious philosophy, traditional living, and nature.
The art show in Fresno this week focuses on the history of the Sikh soldiers.
“The Sikh have always been warriors,” said Punjabi Cultural Center volunteer Neeru Dhindsa. “Even the women would defend their town.”
Apple Inc. hosted Singh’s work exhibition last year at its headquarters in Cupertino. UCLA is going to host the show this year.
Meanwhile, about 40 children and adolescents from ages 7 to 18 years old are attending daily art camp this summer.
“It’s good for our youth to know their roots,” continued Dhindsa. “It’s also important for this art to be seen by the rest of the world, for them to know that the Sikh religion is one that welcomes all.”
Entry for the exhibition is free for all and open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. until Saturday at the Punjabi Cultural Center, 2125 N. Barton Ave., Fresno.
