On April 25, 2015, devastating news emerged from Nepal as the world confronted the loss of life, injuries, and destruction caused by several massive earthquakes.
With the Rubin Museum’s mission closely tied to the region, the earthquakes impacted our community deeply. In the aftermath of the disaster, we were reminded of the critical need to honor and preserve Nepal’s cultural heritage.
We invite you to honor Nepal and its incredible cultural heritage. We have created this page as a resource. Learn how you can support rebuilding efforts, engage with the Nepalese art and cultural heritage from our collection, join the many individuals and institutional partners who are raising awareness of Nepal’s cultural traditions, and check back frequently for updates on special programs and activities at the Rubin.
Share images, well wishes, and information about Nepal’s art and culture using the hashtag #HonorNepal on social media.
