Culturaltourism activities which seem to be at the lowest ebb in Osun State will soon aim skywards going by the reflection of opinions of artists who converged on Osogbo in preparation for the inauguration of the fondest Art Gallery in the South West of the country.

The seven cultural artists who met on Saturday in Osogbo under the leadership of Yinka Fabayo, Curator-In-Chef, Genesis Art Gallery revealed We are committed to the resuscitation and rejuvenation of the pristine Osogbo Art culture which lured the spirit of Ulli Bier and late Susan Wenger and others to the town and state. We are propelled by that inner conviction that what led to the Mbari Mbayo Club are still here only crying for proper direction and packaging.

Mr Fabayo said we have set our hands on the plough of reactivation of the cultural aura of Osogbo, we are going to institute a chain of cultural-tourism activities planted on the fundamentals of the various forms of arts works and perception . Those authentic, natural, inspirational and grassroots arts which once made Osogbo the second tourists destination in Nigeria.

He revealed the first step in this direction will be the opening of the multimillion naira Genesis Art Gallery which is a multi-disciplinary complex of threestorey solely constructed for the expression of the Art.

Mr Fabayo disclosed the inauguration ceremony will not be business as usual, but an inauguration which will accentuate and stoke the real motive of the Art excercise, Osogbo Cultural Art Risorgimento.
