Visitors to Aspinwall House here were joined by actor Prithviraj on Friday.
The actor, who has also sponsored the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, visited the art show with his wife Supriya Menon.
The crowd present – especially the schoolchildren – were thrilled to see the actor at the venue in Fort Kochi.
The actor said the biennale would put the State on the global art map.
“Loads of thought have gone behind each work of art here. It is a noble event for our people to come and experience,” he was quoted in a communication from the event organisers.
Prithviraj said he had known about the event from when it was being conceived two years ago. “The event deserves full-fledged support from people across the State. I hope more people will volunteer funds. Seeing the biennale is also equally important,” he said.
The ‘art car’ that was donated to the biennale was also brought to Aspinwall House on Friday.
The white car will be painted by artist and biennale co-curator Bose Krishnamachari. It will be auctioned on the final day of the biennale and the proceeds will go to support the event.
