Losang Samten: Sacred Sand Mandala

February 4, 2007 - February 16, 2007

Lower Jette Galleries

Artist and former Buddhist monk Losang Samten made an impression on more than 2,000 museum visitors when he created a sand mandala at Colby in the fall of 2005. He’s coming back, and this year his mandala — an elaborate circular “painting” made by pouring colored sand — will be larger and more detailed. He will also lead a meditation and speak on a panel with members of the Colby faculty. All events are free and open to the public.
