Himalayan Art: Journeys of Discoveries

Planning of a traveling exhibition about Himalayan art, history, religion, and culture.

Himalayan Art: Journeys of Discoveries is a multi-venue traveling exhibition that will become a primary resource for the understanding of the art, culture, religion, traditions, and practices of this important cultural sphere that connects South Asia, Central Asia, and Inner Asia. This educational initiative, based on scholarship, will explore a region that once influenced much of Asia and whose ideas are still relevant today. By integrating select objects, narrative descriptions, contextual photographs, audio tours, videos, digital animations, and installations, the exhibition will open to viewers the fundamental art forms and humanities ideas represented in Himalayan visual culture. Himalayan Art: Journeys of Discovery seeks to inform, educate, and inspire students, faculty members, and the interested public about a lesser known area of art and culture necessary for a holistic understanding of Asian art and history.
