Bayly Art Museum Offers Extended Holiday Hours

December 7, 2000 -- The Bayly Art Museum at the University of Virginia invites visitors and their out-of-town guests to visit the special exhibition The Mystical Arts of Tibet during the winter holiday. To better accommodate visitor schedules, the Museum will remain open from Wednesday, December 27, through Saturday, December 30, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. The Museum will be closed from Saturday, December 23, through Tuesday, December 26, and from Sunday, December 31, through New Year’s Day.

The Mystical Arts of Tibet captures the essence of the artistic achievements of both Old Tibet and Tibet-in-Exile as preserved under H.H. the Dalai Lama’s guidance in India and Nepal. The exhibition brings together 108 traditional art objects, including 23 exquisite watercolor tangka paintings, more than a dozen ancient bronze statues, numerous ritual objects made of gilded silver and bronze, and a set of temple musical instruments. Many of these are sacred objects in the collection of H.H. the Dalai Lama’ or ancient artifacts from Drepung Loseling, Tibet’s largest and most prestigious monastery. Supplementing the exhibition are color photographs of Tibet and objects made by Tibetan refugees in India and Nepal.
