Over a span of 19 months Arnett lived with several Indian families in order to study art, culture, and religion. The resulting book "India Unveiled" is the source material for the photos.

The exhibit was donated to UT Arlington by Arnett in early 2008 following the collaboration of donors who paid to have the photos printed, matted and framed, according to Dr. Nilakshi Veerabathina, Lecturer in the Physics Department, who was involved with bring the exhibit to campus. The exhibit is sponsored locally by ZeOmega, by the Indian American Education Foundation, and the UT Arlington Hindu Student Council.
