In early February, curators, conservators, and other specialists from across the United States convened at the Pulitzer for a two-day Buddhist art symposium. The participants discussed issues surrounding the original appearances of older Buddhist objects and how they might influence the conservation, interpretation, and display of Buddhist art in museums. Each session was held within a different gallery space and featured three to four presenters, each of whom introduced new data and perspectives on works featured in Reflections of the Buddha.
