Museum: Sackler Gallery
Location: Outside in heated tent in Moongate Garden. Obtain free, timed tickets in the Sackler Gallery.
As part of its 25th anniversary celebration, the Sackler Gallery's "digital cave" transports you to a site where exquisite murals can be explored in depth. On view for the first time in North America, Pure Land is an immersive digital experience using 3-D modeling, animations, video, and recoloring to re-create cave 220, one of the famous Chinese Buddhist cave temples of Dunhuang. Colorful murals come alive in this hyper-real tour of one of the world's important treasures.
Ticketing information: Free, 15-minute timed tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10 AM in the Sackler Gallery's pavilion. Last entry is at 5:15 PM. There is a limit of 15 persons per 15-minute viewing time. Tickets are only available for a given day.
