The Newark Museum has opened a nine-month celebration honoring Tibetan art, culture and history as part of the centennial of its Tibet Collection. The museum’s new exhibition, “Tsongkhapa–The Life of a Tibetan Visionary”, features a rare complete set of narrative paintings of Tsongkhapa (1357-1419), founder of the Gelug religious order, which includes the Dalai Lama. One of only three known complete sets of these biographical paintings, it has recently been conserved and will be exhibited in its entirety at the Newark Museum for the first time. For more information about the Tibet Collection Centennial, including programs and exhibitions, see the museum’s Web site.
