Mission

The Rubin Museum of Art is a dynamic environment that stimulates learning, promotes understanding, and inspires personal connections to the ideas, cultures, and art of Himalayan regions. We are a hub for meaningful exchange, where contemporary minds meet the art and ideas of the Himalayas. We aim to ignite a sense of curiosity and personal connection through exhibitions, talks, experiences, educating children and adults and creating a vibrant online, digital community that has access to art from the region. The Rubin serves as an oasis for art and mindfulness and also a breeding ground for fearless thinking and compassionate action.

Exhibitions

The Rubin Museum holds one of the top art collections from Himalayan Asia with over 4,000 works from China, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Bhutan, and the Tibetan Plateau.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Educational programs at the Rubin offer audiences new and meaningful ways to engage with the art and culture of the Himalayas, its wider themes, and its applications to everyday life. Talks, performances, and workshops examine the timeless questions that humans have grappled with for centuries, taking inspiration from art. Talks and other public programs engage a diverse range of audiences of all ages and backgrounds. More than 1,000 seniors enjoy free admission and meditation instruction, and more than 300 guests with Alzheimer’s and dementia and their care partners connect with each other as they participate in tours especially designed for these groups. More than 11,000 school children learn about Asia, art, and mindfulness, and low-income students learn about art mandalas, while also learning geometry and math skills. Those who are blind or partially sighted, and those who are deaf or hard of hearing, participate in sensory experience tours that allow the art to speak to them personally.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
People with disabilities

The Rubin Museum makes the art and ideas of the Himalayas available to a growing, digital, global community. Moreover, in 2017, the Rubin Museum launched Spiral, a free annual publication available in print and online. The first issue reached more than 30,000 households and locations, putting into people’s hands the ideas of the Himalayas and the art from which those ideas gain their voice.
