The Rubin is transforming. Read important updates from our Executive Director.

Dynamic and inspiring artist and educator Janet Morgan hosted an immersive course in October, titled Creating Deities: Exploring Inner Guides of Strength, Love, and Insight.

Together, we explored the power of Hindu and Buddhist deities in the galleries through dynamic movement and by creating works of art that helped participants channel their own inner deities.

During the final class, our group was treated us to a Kirtan of traditional Hindu devotional music in the Bakhti tradition by musician Shyama (Julie Chapin).

Shyama even composed beautiful original songs inspired by the works of art made by attendees. It was a magical evening!
