Check out the Buddhist art exhibit, on display for most of this semester at the Mansfield Freeman Center for East Asian Studies (that really nice house with the Zen garden on the corner of Washington Terrace and Wyllys Avenue). From Abby Blake ’10:
Enlightening Images: Buddhist Art Work
Buddhism has been a rich inspiration for artists, and Buddhist art in turn has helped believers to understand and practice their religion better. This exhibition brings together a set of Japanese temple woodcuts, Tibetan prints and contemporary photographs all of which explore the involving, ancient iconographic traditions of East Asian Buddhism.
The center is open daily 12-4pm and closed Mondays. It will be closed October 24-27 and November 23-30.
Date: Oct. 12 – Dec. 3
Time: 12-4 PM, every day but Monday
Place: Mansfield Freeman Center for East Asian Studies
