China Institute: Buddhist Art at the Gateway of the Silk Road

Dunhuang, the western gateway to China, is one of the world's most esteemed art shrines and cultural heritage sites. Dunhuang: Buddhist Art at the Gateway of the Silk Road addresses art and ritual practices of the Northern dynasties [masked]) and the Tang dynasty [masked]).

The exhibition features excavated art works, high relief clay figures, wooden sculpture, silk banners, and molded bricks. A group of treasured Buddhist sutras from the famous Cangjingdong (The Library Cave) illustrate the story behind Dunhuang's historic discovery. Magnificent replicas of a 6th-century central pillar and an 8th-century cave allow visitors to experience the actual cave setting.

Admission to the Institute is free from 6pm - 8pm.
