Miller Beach Arts & Creative District is a volunteer-based organization in Miller Beach, Gary, Indiana. MBACD created Made In Miller to bring awareness to all the wonderful projects the great people of Gary are doing here. MBACD manages two projects: The Marshall J. Gardner Center for the Arts and the Miller Beach Farmers Market.
World Peace Sand Mandala Construction
Watch as 4-8 monks transform the floor of the Marshall J. Gardner Center for the Arts into a vibrant mandala made from individual grains of brightly colored sand. Each day they progress a little further, so feel free to stop by each day to see how it is building up to the final version. The monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery are touring the country and we are very fortunate to be one of the stops on their tour. It takes them 4-5 days to create this beautiful work of art. They will also be selling Tibetan tapestries, singing bowls, jewelry and other items throughout the week.
