The Museum of Sacred Art in Durbuy, Belgium recently opened a comprehensive exhibition of the original manuscript paintings and drawings for Illuminations From the Bhagavad-Gita. The Museum of Sacred Art acquired the entire collection of paintings and drawings that were created over a period of six years by Kim Waters for the book co-authored with Chris Murray.

Kim Waters recently traveled to Durbuy near Brussels for the opening of the exhibition. It was by all accounts a festive atmosphere at the opening.

The Museum of Sacred Art also published a beautiful catalog of the exhibition that includes photographs, memorabilia, and other ephemera with an essay by Steven J. Rosen that details the making of Illuminations From the Bhagavad-Gita.
