Yoga News: Smithsonian Shutdown!
We are very sad to announce that until our government gets off their sitz bones and figures their… stuff... out, the highly-anticipated exhibit, “Yoga: The Art of Transformation", set to open this Saturday, October 19 at the Smithsonian Sackler Gallery will not open. The exhibit was going to illustrate the history and cultural significance of this ancient practice. Set to be displayed until January 26, 2013, we still might get to see it! As for the grand opening, we will sadly have to hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
In a twist of fate, the Sackler Gallery held a gala to raise money to help the show go on last Thursday night (10-10). Thanks to the gala and a loophole in the way Sackler employees are paid, the yoga exhibit WILL in fact open this Saturday, October 19. [SOURCE]
