Norman Cultural Connection will host Tibetan monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery March 24–30, 2019. Visitors are welcome to stop by Tuesday through Saturday to view the mandala. All ages are welcome. A community table will be set up so that visitors can create a sand mandala of their own, using the same type of tool that the monks use. Photography is welcome. The creation of the sand painting with powdered and dyed stone, sand, dust, flowers, and charcoal will require between 75 and 125 hours, with several monks working at a time.
