Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University - SPECIAL EXHIBITION

Doorway to an Enlightened World: The Tibetan Shrine from the Alice S. Kandell Collection
March 19 - November 27, 2016
Visitors will encounter compelling works of Tibetan Buddhist art presented in their proper sacred context. The Tibetan shrine, with objects created in artistic centers across the Tibetan Plateau as well as in China and Mongolia between the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries, is considered the only one of such magnitude and artistic quality in the United States.  The exhibition provides the framework for many of this year’s Tibet Week programs, from a “collecting conversation” between Dr. Kandell and Emory Professor of Religion Joyce Flueckiger to the return of Tibetan Buddhist monks from the Mystical Arts of Tibet constructing the sand mandala of Green Tara. Free admission for Emory students and staff!
