Help Bring Lempad Back to Bali

Almost all of Gusti Nyoman Lempad's early drawings left Bali in the 1930s. Three generations of Balinese have never seen them. You can help bring them home.

We’re reaching out to friends of Balinese painting and the Puri Lukisan for help. Please visit our FundRazr campaign for the whole story. And please follow and share this effort with like-minded friends.

Your gift of $150 will:

• provide a copy of Lempad of Bali: The Illuminating Line to the arts library of an Indonesian public university or museum.

We are deeply grateful to all who have given.
