Staten Island Museum (Building A)
Free with Museum Admission
Join the Staten Island Museum for guided meditation in our Infinite Compassion Gallery. Dress comfortably.
A collaboration with Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, Infinite Compassion introduces visitors to Buddhist art, culture and belief across Asia. After the Buddha, Avalokiteshvara is the most ubiquitous deity in Mahayana Buddhism. This revered Bodhisattva promotes compassion. The exhibit will interpret this aspect of Buddhist art with sculptures, ritual objects, and paintings (thangkas) from India, Tibet, China, Nepal and Japan, as well as contemporary Asian art.
