On a recent trip to the Rubin Museum of Art, Diana and I observed the Himalayan and Hindu artwork. Through a partnership with the Shelly and Donald Rubin Foundation established by Professor Stan Altman, Baruch Students and faculty receive a waived admission fee. Housing both classic and modern Tibetan art, the museum is a bit like a time machine taking you through centuries of evolving art work. From a recreation of a Hindu meditation room to vibrant abstract art, the Rubin Museum is a great introduction into Tibetan culture.
This is the first of a series of posts as part of our exploration of Tibetan culture in New York City.
