Veneralia 25th Anniversary

Silver Moon over the Himalayas
Saturday, February 20, 2016

Join distinguished guests of the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Veneralia: Silver Moon Over the Himalayas - where the warmth of traditional Tibetan lanterns provides an enlightened backdrop for the celebration of Tibetan culture. The Carlos' 25th anniversary of Veneralia draws inspiration from the museum's spring 2016 exhibition Doorway to an Enlightened World: The Tibetan Shrine from the Alice S. Kandell Collection. Your Veneralia participation will provide important funding for this extraordinary exhibition, which will offer museum visitors a rare chance to experience an authenic Tibetan shrine. Lively music and an elegant seated dinner in a celebration fashioned after a traditional Tibetan lantern festival is sure to transport you to the top of the majestic Himalayas. Veneralia 25 will be an occasion not to miss!
