Mandalas by Massood Taj and Free Yoga
During the Franklin Art Scene on Friday, August 3, the Williamson County Enrichment Center, 110 Everbright Ave. (next to the main library), will present art from the Mandala Project by Massood Taj from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., plus a free yoga class.
The Mandala Project is a series of graphically composed patterns by Taj, a local artist and musician. Mandalas share a common component of concentric circles around a central point a unifying symbol, referred to in Sanskrit as “a sacred circle” that contains archetypal connotations transcending cultural barriers and conventional indoctrination. For Taj, the mandalas have “always brought a reassuring feeling of connectedness; that I am part of a whole and one with it. . . . I’m sharing some of my Mandala compositions in way of response to the world’s chaos and dissonance,” he states, adding, “We’re in this together.”
On Friday, the Williamson County Enrichment Center will also offer a fun free yoga class from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Participants are encouraged to bring a mat and water. This class is open to all ages and ability levels. This class is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
