Portland High School Students To Attend Dalai Lama Events & Display Art Work

Yangsi Rinpoche, president of Maitripa College, has generously offered 150 high school students in the Portland metro area the opportunity to listen to His Holiness the Dalai Lama speak.

Students from LEP Charter High School, Sandy High School, Catlin Gabel School, and Liberty High School will be attending the “Spirituality and the Environment” talks on Thursday at the University of Portland, or Saturday’s “Environmental Summit” at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

As gesture of appreciation, the students will exhibit artwork they have created for the audience to view on the Coliseum concourse on May 11, 2013. Numerous pieces of multi-media art – including paintings, collages, sculptures, and even an interactive sand mandala – will express the students’ studies and thoughts about the environment, faith, and peace.
