The Roadhouse Foundation aims to take art to the people.
The Roadhouse Group and Museum of Nepali Art (MONA) jointly launched the Roadhouse Foundation on September 8, at MEZZE by Roadhouse, Durbarmarg. Renowned corporate personalities, influencers, and media representatives attended the event.
The Roadhouse was first established by two Kayestha brothers in Thamel, and the name was inspired by The Doors' popular song "Roadhouse Blues," which is now leading the way as a successful brand.
The foremost purpose of the collaboration between The Roadhouse Group and the Museum of Nepali Art (MONA) is to take art to the people. Exquisitely curated and aesthetically embellished arts were the events' major attraction. Magnificent artworks initiated the conversations between artists and guests present at the event.
Speaking at the event, Rajan Shakya, the founder of MONA, mentioned that the main initiation behind the collaboration with art is to take art to the people, believing art doesn’t have to be confined to galleries, museums, and offices.
Lisa Choegyal, honorary consul, New Zealand, inaugurated the event, praising the innovative, cooperative, and initiative-driven approach of The Roadhouse Foundation.
