The Asheville Art Museum is honored to be an annual recipient of the Norton Family Christmas Project since 1993. The Museum is excited to present a selection of these gifts in Unwrapped: Gifts from the Peter Norton Family Christmas Project, an exhibition on view October 28, 2017 – January 21, 2018.

Committed to helping promote and launch the careers of his favorite artists, Norton selects promising individuals and introduces new talent to a community of curators, such as Sanford Biggers, Vik Muniz and Kara Walker.

Road to Refuge: An Introduction to Buddhist Practice @ Urban Dharma
Jan 18 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Seeking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha is considered the gateway to Buddhist practice. Through engaging with these “Three Refuges,” we are provided with the context, methods, and support for the transformation of suffering. In this series of three classes, Dr. Hun Lye will share his reflections on Buddhist notions of faith, the value of dynamic engagement with doubt, and the non-dogmatic trust and clarity that can arise from holding both. This is a good opportunity for those curious about Buddhist practice, as well as a good way to start the new year for “old timers.”
This program has a suggested donation of $10 per class, though all are encouraged to participate regardless of ability to make this donation.
