    Enter the Mandala

    Enter the Mandala
    March 14–October 26, 2014

    Mandalas are maps of Buddhist visionary worlds. For practitioners of meditation, mandalas are not just beautiful images to view, but worlds to enter. In this exhibition, fourteenth-century paintings transformed an open gallery space into an architectural mandala, a chance to literally “enter the mandala” to explore places in the cosmos—and perhaps ourselves—that might otherwise remain invisible.
