Sand Mandala Destruction Ceremony
Sand Artist Katie Jo Suddaby created a Sand Mandala in September to honor Rochester Suffragists here in Hacker Hall. 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 5-6.
