Opening Weekend

Reimagine: Himalayan Art Now

Saturday, March 16, 2024
11:00 AM–5:00 PM

Celebrate the opening of our 20th-anniversary exhibition, Reimagine: Himalayan Art Now, with free admission all weekend. The Museum-wide exhibition features artworks by over 30 contemporary artists, many from the Himalayan region and diaspora and others inspired by Himalayan art and cultures. The entire Museum is transformed with new commissions and recent works juxtaposed with objects from the Rubin’s collection, inviting new ways of encountering traditional Himalayan art.

Join us for a free docent-led tour of Reimagine: Himalayan Art Now at 2:00 PM.
