Country’s longest mural at Summit Gazipur Power Plant

Prime Minister’s Energy, Power and Mineral Resources Advisor Dr Tawfiq-e-Elahi  Chowdhury inaugurated the country’s longest mural (painting on a wall) at Summit Gazipur 464 MW Power Plant’s Hamiduzzaman Sculpture Park at Kodda, Gazipur on Sunday.  

The sculpture park has Bangladesh’s longest (340 feet-long) mural titled ‘Srom o Sristi’ and sculptures with themes ‘World in a frame’ and ‘Life & Lifeless’.

On Hamiduzzaman Sculpture Park the Chairman of Summit Group Muhammed Aziz Khan remarked, “Work is natural to humanity and is nature’s necessity so that the world can continue to innovate, build and create. Summit pursues businesses which enable humanity to move forward and live in harmony, peace and happiness. We are one with art and philosophy.”

The open-air sculpture park with natural setting enhances Summit’s unique love for art. The large-scale mural and contemporary sculpture garden is one of the significant art projects of Summit and is a testimony of the symbiotic relationship between industrialisation and work of art. Summit believes that true growth can be achieved if there is a balance between work and art.
