Rubin Museum of Art

150 W. 17th St.
New York, NY, 10011, United States
TEL: (212) 620-5000

The Rubin Museum of Art is a collection paintings, sculptures, and textiles from the Himalayas and surrounding regions. The mission of the museum is to curate a collection that raises the profile of Himalayan art, which has received relatively less attention than the art of many other cultures. The exhibits feature pieces that mostly date back to the 12th century and onward and are presented along with illuminating education materials to help patrons understand the different lenses through which the art can be viewed. New exhibitions, such as Modernist Art from India, are rotated in throughout the year.

Insider Tip:
