Sacred Art Tour with Tibetan Buddhist Monks

Art Show

Eight Tibetan Buddhist monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery, students of H.H. Dalai Lama, will visit the Coral Springs Museum of Art to share their teachings and artistic expression with the community. The monks will devote each day to constructing the renowned sand mandala. Millions of colored grains of sand will be carefully laid out in detailed patterns and diagrams, which represent sacred textual Buddhist imagery. Highlights of the week will include a Tibetan lunch prepared by the monks, authentic Tibetan artistic workshops, a Celebration of Community with interfaith dialogue, a catered farewell dinner with the monks, and a Cultural Pageant Spectacular with costume, ritual dance, song and chants. The Coral Springs Museum of Art is one of only 33 locations the monks are visiting during their 2018 North American Sacred Art Tour, so this is one experience you will not want to miss.
