      Gallery Talk: Sacred Dedication: A Korean Buddhist Masterpiece

      Thursday, November 14, 2019, 1 pm

      Take advantage of this rare opportunity to see a thirteenth-century work of art that has never been shown outside of Korea—until now. Explore Sacred Dedication, which focuses on a single object from the National Museum of Korea—a beautiful gilt wood sculpture of Gwaneum, the bodhisattva of compassion and the most popular deity in Korean Buddhism. Learn more about Buddhist art and practice and discover the sculpture’s secrets in this gallery talk led by exhibition curator Keith Wilson.
