<< Ronald Bernier
The free, public presentation will be held from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Eaton Humanities Building room 250. A reception will be held following the lecture.
Bernier, a CU-Boulder faculty member since 1971, will retire following the spring semester, but will give special seminars occasionally. He is a widely known Asian art history scholar and has led study tours in Tibet, Burma, Nepal, Vietnam, India, Sri Lanka and other Asian countries.
During the talk, Bernier will show photographs of and discuss little known Buddhist arts he viewed in Burma, Tibet and Ladakh, a district of India, over the past several years. Some of the arts were unknown until the Dalai Lama recently urged that they be shared, according to Bernier. His photographs include monasteries, altars, murals and colossal Buddhist figures, many of which date to the 11th century.
