Description
 
This catalogue offers an overview of the origins of traditional Himalayan prayer flags as well as a contemporary view of their continued potency in the communication of hope for communal and individual well-being. Also presented are colorful reproductions of the more than 120 contemporary designs made for prayer flags by artists from around the world who contributed their best wishes for the success of the Rubin Museum of Art when it opened in October 2004. RMA commissioned works from contemporary artists to celebrate the opening of the museum, and the works were then printed on pieces of silk cut into small squares and hung in strings in the traditional manner of Tibetan prayer flags. The flags have been shown on several occasions at RMA since 2004. Aloft and aflutter, they have filled the air with good wishes, unfurled joyous colors, and dispensed good fortune. Here, the excellent reproductions are bound in one small volume for individual scrutiny and pleasure.
