An exhibition throughout Linderman Library commemorates the events and activities leading up to and including the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Lehigh University in July 2008.
Composed of event artifacts and images, the exhibition begins with the first-year student experience reading Freedom in Exile
, an autobiography of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and includes coverage of the numerous lectures and events presented throughout the school year.
Two featured highlights are the sand mandala created in Linderman Library by Monks of the Namgyal Monastery Institute and the teaching and public lecture in July by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Large colorful photographs document these memorable events.
A timeline, table tents and bookmarks were designed and installed by FUSION Studio, a student design agency extension of the Graphic Design program at Lehigh University. Meredith Talbot ’10 was the project manager and Dylan Coonrad ’09 was the designer.
This exhibition is on display in Linderman Library until the end of the fall semester, December 17, 2008.
