Introducing viewers to paintings of India and its subcontinent, these works will be seen through larger-than-life narratives based on classical literature of the region.

    Spanning the 16th through 19th centuries, the stories include the Bhagavata Purana, ancient tales of Lord Vishnu and his various incarnations; the Ramayana, recounting the adventures and battles of Hindu god, Rama; the Ragamala, stories entailing music, love, and seasons; and works of Persian literature, including the Shahnama, an epic tale illuminating the cultural and geographic breadth of Iran, and its heroic rulers.

    The Center for World Music Odissi Dance School will present dance of the Ragamala theme.
