The research, restoration of information and conservation of rich cultural heritage of paintings, sculptures, the painters & sculptors is of paramount importance, so that the values, information pertaining to same does not vanish due to irresponsible acts supposedly attributable to the absence of research, non documentation, lost references /records etc. to say the least. It is important to be proactive and conserve this information, so that not only the present contributions by the Indian artists could be preserved, but the ones from past could also be restored by undertaking rigorous research, documentation & digitization.

R2C is Research, Restoration of information & Conservation Program that has been designed with an intention to protect national heritage of Art & Culture. The Program consists of creating a database on Painters, Sculptors of the past and present generations, especially with regards to their early life, the inspirations and values they thrived on, their contributions in the related art and the achievements they attained highlighting their overall life cycle digitally, in audio visual format, data sheets etc. Such database would be encased in the form of documentary / educational film/s as an end product for the purpose of Bombay Art Society's Library, information for circulation and education to the interested students, artisans etc.
