Journey and Transformation: Exploring the Fluidity of Life

Tour and Conversation for Caregivers

Friday, November 2, 2018
2:00 PM–4:00 PM

No one lives forever. But can art help change our perspectives on life and death? As part of Reimagine End of Life Week, caregivers are invited to join us in exploring the big questions about life and death, as presented in the Rubin art galleries.

Impermanence is a term often used in Tibetan Buddhism as a reminder of the cycle of death and rebirth. At this program, caregivers will open their minds to a different understanding of time and form a new relationship with the future. Step into a world where past, present, and future exist all at once by exploring how contemporary artists and traditional Buddhist artworks from the Himalayas lend us new perspectives on our journey.

This program begins with a 75-minute gallery tour followed by conversation in the Rubin Museum’s Café Serai including complimentary tea and refreshments.
