Watch a Sand Mandala Be Created by Sand Artist Katie Jo Suddaby
Sand Mandalas last for just a short time, but the images and messages cling to the emotions for years. Experience the beauty of this meditative art at the Central Library with Rochester, NY artist Katie Jo Suddaby. Katie Jo will be creating an original work to honor Rochester Suffragists in collaboration with the Susan B. Anthony House.
Sand Mandalas have been created by Tibetan monks for thousands of years. The art teaches impermanence. When the sand painting is complete, it is brushed away and returned to nature. On Wednesday, October 4th, come back to participate in the Destruction Ceremony from 12-1
