Steamboat Springs celebrates a week of Tibetan art and culture in August 2010!

The Drepung Loseling monks at work on a mandala sand painting

Bud Werner Memorial Library welcomes the Tibetan Buddhist monks from Drepung Loseling monastery for a week-long residency in Library Hall, where, over the course of five days (Aug. 14-18), they will create a Mandala Sand Painting right before your eyes.  During the course of the week there will be a variety of events around the community, including a film screening, teachings by the monks, a Sacred Dance/Sacred Music show at Strings Music Festival and a Himalayan art exhibit at the Depot.

Stay tuned for further details. The schedule here will be updated regularly.  Bud  looks forward to sharing the Mandala on the Yampa with all of you!
