Echoes of the Past: The Buddhist Cave Temples of Xiangtangshan

Implementation of a traveling exhibition, a website, an international symposium, a catalog, and programs on the sculptures of Xiangtangshan caves in China.

Combining ancient sculptures, ground-breaking scholarship, and contemporary digital media, "Echoes of the Past" tells the remarkable story of the Xiangtangshan caves, one of the earliest and most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in China. Organized by the University of Chicago's Smart Museum of Art in partnership with the Smithsonian's Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, this extraordinary new exhibition will be presented in four major metropolitan areas across the United States: Chicago, Washington D.C., Dallas, and San Diego.
