HINDU ART HAS ITS OWN SPOKESMAN
Apr. 26, 2011

If the U.S. has any kind of Hindu spokesman, it would have to be Rajan Zed, the Las Vegas-based head of the Universal Society of Hinduism, whose many ventures into the press range from campaigning for an “R” rating for the movie Angels & Demons to participating in the “On Faith” dialogue at the Washington Post.

Zed is also an all-around advocate for art exhibitions that put the spotlight on Hindu craft and culture, as members of the art press on his email list can testify. This weekend, for instance, Zed praised the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena for displaying an 11th-century sandstone Vishnu in its new show, “Ancient Sculpture from the Hindu-Buddhist World,” Apr. 22-Aug. 1, 2011.
