If you haven’t yet been to “The Rama Epic,” the exhibit about the Ramayana at the Asian Art Museum, do yourself a favor and go before it closes on Jan. 15. Yes, I know it’s a pain to drive all the way up to San Francisco, but there’s a parking garage right across the street — and this exhibit is just about guaranteed to boost your family’s religious literacy.
If you don’t know the Ramayana very well, this exhibit is a fun introduction. The exhibit introduces you to four main characters from the Ramayana — Rama the hero, Sita the heroine, Hanuman the good monkey god, and Ravana the evil ten-headed demon. The exhibit includes art works, of course — but also videos of dance and puppet performances, and excerpts from the 2008 TV series produced in India. The museum will be offering a Family Fun day on Jan. 15, 10:30-2:30 — you could leave right after Sunday school and make it in plenty of time. More info here: http://www.asianart.org/
See you soon,
