You can take part in Asia Week by joining us for our 2015 Asia Week Celebration this Thursday, March 19. This occasion will help commemorate the start of the Rubin Museum’s second decade and the opening of our newest exhibition “Becoming Another: The Power of Masks.” It promises to be a fun night filled with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a special performance by aerialists from Shore Circus, called Rope of Light!
