CRANFORD—The Newark Museum Speakers Bureau will visit the Cranford Community Center, located at 220 Walnut Avenue, to present “Tibet and Its Treasures” on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. Admission to the program is free and all are welcome. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.
Using beautiful images, the speaker will present a detailed overview of the Museum’s Tibetan Art collection, one of the finest and most comprehensive in the world. “Tibet and Its Treasures” provides a view into the many fascinating aspects of Tibet and the life of its people. Photographs of the remote Tibetan landscape set the stage for a look at the daily life of this unique culture: examples of fascinating apparel, incredible jewelry, and beautifully crafted furniture.
The audience will also visit a Buddhist temple in Lhasa and see extraordinary works from the Museum’s galleries related to the Tibetan Buddhist religion, including the Tibetan Altar room, one of the jewels in the crown of the Newark Museum’s collection.
“The Friends of the Library are offering ‘Tibet and Its Treasures’ to the community in order to share a wonderful cultural attraction,” remarked Jerry Pardiso, President of the Friends of the Cranford Public Library. “Providing educational sessions exposes people to tremendous artwork that they ordinarily may not have the opportunity to see or learn about.”
The Newark Museum Speakers Bureau is a project of the Newark Museum Volunteer Organization. Its goal is to bring the richness of the Museum’s world-class art collection to local communities. To contact the Museum for information about how to schedule a volunteer presentation, call 1-973-596-5144, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to its permanent collections, the Museum offers special exhibitions, gallery tours, art workshops, public programs, lectures and family activities. Visit NewarkMuseum.org to learn more and explore what the Museum has to offer.
