February Sundays: Earth Painting

Losar, the Himalayan New Year, is upon us and the Rubin is celebrating 2018’s lunar sign, the Earth Dog, by painting with the most basic element: earth! Get down and dirty painting with mud and soil. Playing with dirt serves as a nostalgic exploration of the environment. Tibetans have used mud for art-making in the past, and we are reviving this element for the future.

Not only will you be taking from the earth but you’ll also be adding to it by planting your very own Losar metok, Tibet’s winter flower! See how the metok grows over time.

Save the date for our February 18 Losar Himalayan New Year Festival!



Family Sundays are made possible by New York Life. Additional support has been provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
