Paintings by Zen Master Hakuin (1685-1768) at NOMA Friday

From February 11 to April 17, 2011, the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) presents a new exhibition of paintings and calligraphy by the most significant Japanese Zen master of the past 500 years, Hakuin Ekaku.
Organized by NOMA, The Sound of One Hand: Paintings and Calligraphy by Zen Master Hakuin is the first exhibition in the Western world devoted to the art of Hakuin (1685-1768). Hakuin invented a new visual language for Zen, using folk and everyday subjects in addition to traditional Zen themes. His influence in both teaching and art remains unequaled in Zen today.
