‘Encountering the Buddha: Art and Practice across Asia’ @ Freer | Sackler Galleries

More than two hundred pieces of Buddhist art comprise this new exhibit from the Freer | Sackler Galleries. Spread across two millennia, the works show Asia’s powerful Buddhist heritage. You’ll learn how the art is perceived to have sacred power, how Buddhists have engaged with the works, how the religious understanding of the pieces differs from the practical one and the contexts within which said art was created.
