Event Details

November 13 through November 17 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Down Jersey Folklife Center.

Tibetan master artist Losang Samten will visit WheatonArts for a special 5-day residency to create the “Wheel of Life” mandala. This image in colored sand is both a visual aid to interpreting the cycle of life and a symbolic comment on the consequences of life choices. The medium of sand reminds the viewer of the impermanence of all things. All visitors are invited to observe the artist at work, to discuss with Losang the creative process, and to learn about the meanings of the mandala elements. A special station will be available for those who want to try the technique.

On Saturday, November 17, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., Losang Samten will conduct the mandala dismantling ceremony. Admission this day is FREE for all visitors through WheatonArts Family Days! Presented by PNC Arts Alive!
