MASSACHUSETTS---Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (ISGM) in Boston is currently exhibiting artwork titled "Not All Who Wander Are Lost", which uses Hindu bindis as a signature element. Created by artist-in-residence England-born Bharti Kher for the Museum's fa├žade, it reflects on maritime travel, and uses bindis as a central motif "to map demographic movement in an abstract way"; and shall be displayed till January next.
