The Newark Museum (Newark, NJ) is hosting a major exhibit of Tibetan masterpieces titled “The Tibet Collection Centennial Exhibitions” including a complete set of fifteen biographical narrative paintings featuring Tsongkhapa (1357–1419). According to the museum website, this significant group of paintings is one of only three known complete sets worldwide and the only one held in a Museum collection. The exhibit will be on display until the end of December 2011.
Also featured in the exhibit are pots of silver and gold, a chapel of the masters, and many other special exhibits highlighting Tibet’s rich artistic heritage. A complete description of the exhibit and related activities (including a summer camp for kids) is available on the museum website.
Special thanks to my father for telling me about the exhibit.
Please feel free to share your impressions of the exhibit.
