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 the Himalayas. Now in its second decade, the Rubin has welcomed over 200,000 visitors in the past year and has a growing membership of more than 4,000 households. Within its five floors of galleries are several long-term rotating installations drawn from the permanent collection as well as frequent short-term exhibitions that are more broadly conceived. The Rubin’s collection includes over 3,500 objects spanning more than 1,500 years up to the present day. Renowned for its quality and depth, the collection focuses on art from the Tibetan Plateau and is broadened by a significant number of important examples from surrounding regions. The Rubin presents films, performances, and on-stage conversations as well as a robust roster of other educational initiatives. The ground floor, anchored by its magnificent staircase, is free and open to all visitors and provides a lively nexus for conversation, shopping, refreshment and dining.
