Borders and Crossroads: The Buddhist Art of Ancient Gandhara, through October 7. The mountainous region of ancient Gandhara (today encompassing parts of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and northwest India) flourished from the first through the sixth centuries and was known for its commingling of eastern and western cultural and artistic traditions. This exhibition explores the sources that helped shape Gandharan sculpture and the larger phenomenon of cross-cultural appropriation in ancient Eurasia. Smart Museum; call 773/702-0200.
