Campus Community Book Project

Viewed by the Hindu and Buddhist religions as a symbol of the universe, and used by them as an instrument of meditation, a mandala is a graphic design of repeating colors, shapes and patterns, sometimes made with sand, around a unifying center — not unlike the role of the UC Davis Principles of Community. Fittingly, the mandala to be created in this workshop — which comes amid Principles of Community Week — will be a group project (unifying, if you will) whereby participants will create individual sections that will be assembled into one piece for display on a wall on the first floor of Shields Library. The workshop is family friendly, open to all. Come anytime to participate. Supplies will be provided: paper, ink and calligraphy brushes. Led by Zsófia Pénzváltó, artist and illustrator and former postdoctoral researcher in molecular biology at UC Davis’ Center for Comparative Medicine.
