Academy’s Bhutan show extended
"The Dragon's Gift: The Sacred Arts of Bhutan," the Honolulu Academy of Arts' monumental exhibit of religious artwork, is being extended to May 25.
In accordance with Bhutanese protocol, the Academy consulted with Lopon Ugyen Dorji, pictured at left, the country's foremost astrologer, to decide upon the new closing date. The astrologer also set the opening and original closing dates of the show.
"The Dragon's Gift" has been popular with audiences; visitors to the Academy have increased 100 percent since the show's opening on Feb. 26.
Admission to the show is $10, in addition to regular entrance fees. Call 532-8700 or visit honoluluacademy.org/dragonsgift.
