BUDART: Meditative Art Festival

Schedule

A group of world-class artists and musicians. A culture of self-development. A community of people eager to make a positive change.

The Budart Festival offers a one-of-a-kind art and meditation experience. Join us for meditative art exhibition, live music, art workshops, independent film screenings, yoga and meditation classes and so much more!

ADMISSION IS FREE

The inaugural Budart Festival featured an international exhibition of meditative artworks curated with a dynamic series of programs to reflect on the beauty, richness and significance of meditation. The centerpiece of the exhibition was the first display in the U.S. of the Piprahwa Buddha relics considered to be the sacred remains of the historical Buddha Sakyamuni.

 

The exhibition of paintings and installations brought together internationally recognized artists who directly convey their personal practice of meditation into their artwork. Casting ancient wisdom through the medium of contemporary art, this show has given attendees the opportunity to intuitively experience the illumination and serenity of meditation simply by observing works of art.

 

The festival program invited everyone to take part in a wide range of art and meditation workshops, meditative music concerts, talks by prominent speakers and performances. Featured events include: Katherine Patiño Miranda’s “Luncheon,” a performance exploring the concept of interdependence; world music concerts and sound healing sessions by celebrated musician Denis Kucherov of the band Samhey, Sufi and Bollywood singer Kailash, and opera and mantra singer Sangeeta Kaur; “Journey to Your Future Self” meditation workshop with Peter Oppermann; and Sherab Khandro’s workshop on meditation and art.
