The Rubin Museum of Art is one of those special gems in the American art landscape. Donald and Shelley Rubin purchased the 25,000 square foot space on West 17th Street in Manhattan in 1998 and spent the next six years in painstaking renovations. Today, the museum displays more than 1,000 Himalayan art objects, including sculptures, paintings, textiles, and ritual objects spanning 18 centuries of Tibetan, Chinese, Indian, Nepalese, Mongolian, and Bhutanese art. From the homepage, viewers can start by looking over the upcoming Events, then move onto current Exhibitions. This last section is a great find for teachers and educators, as many of the exhibitions include some form of interactive activity or virtual exploration through the vivid and colorful displays at the museum.
