UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI MUSEUM

Please join us for a lecture by Dr. Angela F. Howard. She will discuss how the photos of the Dunhuang caves’ architecture and paintings enable us to reconstruct the type of Buddhism practiced at Dunhuang, a Chinese transformation of Indian and Central Asian traditions. Reception to follow.

Dr. Angela F. Howard, Professor Emerita of Asian art, Rutgers University and former special consultant in Chinese Buddhist Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY.

This lecture complements the University of Mississippi Museum’s current exhibition: Dunhuang through the Lens of James and Lucy Lo.
