Tibetan Monks from

    IA Arts Council

    This project supported in part by a grant from the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs.

 

Tarahouse was awarded a grant by the Iowa Arts Council at the end of April to support bringing the monks from Gaden Shartse monastery back to build another sand mandala at Eppley Gallery on Morningside College campus, here in Sioux City, IA.

See schedule below.

And a big THANK YOU to the Iowa Arts Council.
