Art student examines Vishnu statue (NS)
Join us at the Norton Simon Museum of [Buddhist] Art for an enchanting evening exploring the museum’s Indian art collection.

Take an artful meditation tour of select works in the collection or learn tips on meditation in a drop-in session in the Asian Sculpture Garden. 

Avalokita, Shakyamuni, Maitreya
Enjoy the sounds of the tabla, tanpura, and flute in the galleries, or stop by the museum's theater to see works come to life as dancers recreate the poses seen in sculptures from India.

Families can create a drum inspired by the rhythmic movements in the sculptures. Challenge a friend to a game of chess (a game invented by Buddhist monastics in Asia) in the galleries and garden.

Enjoy the many flavors of India with special treats available for purchase in the Garden Café.
