‘Enlightenment in Ink’ opens at Claremont Colleges Library

The Claremont Colleges Library’s second summer exhibit, Enlightenment in Ink: the art of Buddhist prints, opened August 1 in its Asian Library, also known as Honnold Three. It will be on display through September 30.

The collection showcases the library’s collection of rare Chinese Buddhist prints and manuscripts — most of which date from the late imperial period of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1912).

The exhibit is open to current Claremont Colleges students, faculty, and staff, and by appointment to the community at https://claremont.libcal.com/reserve/exhibition.

Viewers are reminded to arrive no more than five minutes before appointments; enter through the south or north entrance and check in — the south entrance has an automated front door and wheelchair-accessible ramp; and remember to bring an I.D. as a staff member will ask for it to confirm your appointment before directing you to the gallery area. Masks are required when in the building and food is not permitted.

The Claremont Colleges Library is located at 800 N. Dartmouth Ave. The exhibit is viewable Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
