Warangal Urban: The historical Warangal city is all set to get a makeover in terms of development, and beautification of the thoroughfares with the efforts to develop the junctions as well as (street art) painting on the walls.
The Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation (GWMC), Kakatiya Urban Development Authority (KUDA) and National Highways Department had already begun the exercise for the junction development including parks in the city. District Collector Amrapali Kata has decided to get the walls in the city painted with street art or graffiti soon. As a part of this initiative, she has invited the artists/painters including the 3D artists for an interview on Saturday.
It may be recalled here some street painting depicting the culture and local monuments was done about three years ago. The KUDA has also set up idols/ sculpture belonging to Kakatiya era at the road junctions as a part of the city beautification project.
Meanwhile, Collector Amrapali, who is fond of art and literature, is keen on transforming the streets with the street art and provide a visual feast to the city dwellers as well as the tourists.
On the other hand, the KUDA is also making efforts to develop the historical places including the Thousand Pillar temple, Bhadrakali tank bund, Warangal Fort and others under the Centre-sponsored Heritage Development and Augmentation Yojana (HRIDAY).
Sources said that the Collector Amrapali is also evincing much interest in the 3D art, which is catching in the metros of late.
