Honoring Nepal

A Special Installation

May 4–November 30, 2015

The importance of Nepal as a rich and historic source for sacred Buddhist and Hindu art is reflected in the more than six hundred Nepalese objects in the Rubin Museum’s collection. Honoring Nepal is a special installation located in the Museum’s lobby and free of charge for visitors, presenting a small selection of our Nepalese art to acknowledge the devastating and destructive natural disaster that struck the country in late April. Throughout the Rubin’s galleries, objects of Nepalese origin will be highlighted with the label #HonorNepal, showcasing their significance in the collection and providing context for visitors.
