The Rubin Museum of Art’s immersive environment stimulates learning, promotes understanding, and inspires personal connections to the ideas, cultures, and art of Himalayan Asia. The only museum in the U.S. dedicated to the Himalayan region, the Rubin has welcomed more than one million visitors since its founding in 2004. Its outstanding collections of Chinese, Indian, Afghan, Bhutanese, Mongolian, Nepalese, Pakistani, and Tibetan art, which include photography, are complemented by a diverse array of films, on-stage conversations, concerts, and special events. The Museum’s education, community, and access programming is dedicated to providing audiences of all ages and backgrounds with multidimensional experiences that foster dialogue and active engagement with the traditions and cultures of the Himalayas. The Rubin Museum’s Café Serai and shop are also inspired by the region and serve as a natural extension of the gallery and programming experience. www.rubinmuseum.org
