Dunhuang: An Oasis of East-West Cultural, Commercial, and Religious Exchanges Along the Ancient Silk Road
For ten days this fall, a section of Bryant will be transformed into an ancient Chinese cave. Bryant University will be the first U.S. academic institution to reconstruct a 1:1 scale replica of a 6th Century cave from the Mogao Grottoes, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Dunhuang: An Oasis of East-West Cultural, Commercial, and Religious Exchanges Along the Ancient Silk Road is an interactive exhibit and series of events hosted on Bryant campus from September 27th to October 6th, 2017. Visitors will be able to explore the exhibit through a guided tour and enter the reconstructed cave. Throughout the week we will be hosting a series of seminars focusing on arts, culture, history, and religions of these caves and the ancient Silk Road.
On September 30, Bryant will celebrate Confucius Institute Day with live music, hands-on activities, a cave virtual reality experience, and more.
