San Antonio Museum of Art presents "Heaven and Hell: Salvation and Retribution in Pure Land Buddhism"
The San Antonio Museum of Art will present "Heaven and Hell: Salvation and Retribution in Pure Land Buddhism," the first exhibition in the U.S. to explore in detail one of the most popular forms of Buddhism throughout Asia.
Featuring approximately 70 works - including paintings, sculpture, and decorative objects - the exhibition contrasts the visions of heaven and hell, ideas that are central to Pure Land Buddhism.
Curated by Dr. Emily Sano, PhD, the Coates-Cowden-Brown Senior Advisor for Asian Art at the San Antonio Museum of Art, the exhibition features some of the most stunning examples of works created as part of the sect's devotional and funerary traditions. They are drawn from 15 private collections and institutions across the country and world as well as the Museum’s own Asian collections.
