Dharma and Punya: Buddhist Ritual Art of Nepal

Implementation of a temporary, single-site exhibition exploring the art and architecture of the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal.

The Cantor Art Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross seeks funding support of $100,000 from the NEH Public Humanities Projects Exhibitions Grant program to support the implementation of a temporary art exhibition to be held from September 4th through December 15th, 2019 entitled, “Dharma and Punya: Buddhist Ritual Art of Nepal.” The exhibition addresses two special areas of interest specified in the NEH program statement by protecting our our cultural heritage and reaching underserved communities. This exhibition will feature extraordinary examples of art and architecture from the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal; it will illustrate how art forms have for millennia attracted the devotion of Buddhist householders through the depiction of doctrinal stories and facilitating ritual practices.
