NASHVILLE---The Frist Center for the Visual Arts presents Secrets of Buddhist Art: Tibet, Japan, and Korea at the Ingram Gallery February 10 through May 7, 2017. The exhibition showcases approximately 100 works from the Newark Museum’s authentic collection, exploring the depths of the Buddhist faith within Tibet, Korea, and Japan through art. Visitors will have the opportunity to watch Tibetan-Buddhist monks create a sand mandala painting. The painting will be on view in the galleries until the closing weekend of the exhibition, when it will be ceremonially destroyed. [link]
