Library seeks design ideas for sand painting event

Bud Werner Memorial Library is seeking design idea submissions for the 2015 community sand painting, which will take place during the time six Tibetan Buddhist monks from Drepung Loseling Monastery take up residency at Bud Werner Memorial Library from July 29 to Aug. 2 to construct a sand mandala in Library Hall.

As the monks create their sand mandala, the community will have an opportunity to try the ancient art of sand painting, using the same tools and techniques that the monks employ, on an adjacent community sand painting.

Design ideas must be submitted to the library by no later than 5 p.m. Monday. The winning design will be revealed before the monks arrive, in mid-July. Designs can be delivered in person to the library front desk or via mail to 1289 Lincoln Ave., Steamboat Springs, CO 80487. Clearly mark submissions with name, phone number and email address.

Important elements to consider for design submissions can be found here.
