Memory Connections is a free monthly program that promotes engagement between adults living with dementia and the art and cultures of the Himalayan region. Join Rubin Museum staff and teaching artists for an hour of close looking, discussion, and interpretation of traditional and contemporary Himalayan art. This program takes place online via Zoom.
Usher in the Lunar New Year with symbols of good luck, prosperity, and happiness. Our February program celebrates Losar, the Tibetan Lunar New Year, with an exploration of two related objects from the Rubin’s collection: a sculpture of Marichi, the Buddhist goddess of the dawn, and a painted chart that serves as a protective talisman.
Major support for Memory Connections is provided by the Mellon Foundation with additional support from The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism.
