Join us for a communal blessing ceremony for the exhibition Revealing Krishna: Journey to Cambodia’s Sacred Mountain, on view from April 30 to September 18, 2022. Led by three monks from the Cambodian Buddhist temple Watt Buddhacheya Mongkol in Woodbridge, Virginia, the ceremony uses practices such as chanting, sprinkling water, and specific hand gestures to confer protection and good luck. Afterwards, enjoy Cambodian-inspired refreshments by Oh Graze Away and Little Lana’s Cookies. Then come inside to experience the exhibition and meet curator Emma Natalya Stein and praCh Ly, director of the documentary film សាធុ Satook, which explores the transformation of religious traditions in Cambodian American communities.
