Event Description:
Reception: National Sacred Arts Tour and Exhibition
Description: Join us for a reception for the National Sacred Arts Tour and Exhibition on Thursday, Sept. 12, from 5:30-7PM in Rueff Gallery East. The National Sacred Arts Tour of the monks of the Drepung Gomang Monastery, based in Tibet, will be visiting Purdue from September 9 - 13.

Gallery visitors will be able to watch as the Drepung Gomang monks painstakingly lay millions of grains of colored sand onto a platform over a period of several days, forming an intricate sand mandala in Rueff Gallery East (Pao Hall). The monks utilize the Sacred Arts Tour as a way to spread a message of peace, share the Tibetan Buddhist culture, and to raise funds for their monastery’s charitable work.

For full community schedule, to get involved, and additional event information, please visit www.facebook.com/TibetanMonksLafayette Rueff Galleries have extended opening hours for this exhibition: 9AM – 7PM, Monday – Thursday, and 9AM – 6PM on Friday.
