The Rubin Museum Today

I didn't know about the Rubin Museum until a few weeks ago when I heard an announcement about it on WBGO.  I was curious and thought I would check it out.  Some museums are comprehensive in the types of art they collect, but the Rubin was quite specific as it specializes in the art of the Himalayas and the surrounding regions.  Some of the art was as old as the 13th century while other offerings were as recent as 2017.  The docent who gave us a tour was quite knowledgeable as he gave detailed analyses of some of the artwork in the collection.

If I waited until August, I could have gotten free admission with my library card as I stated in my last entry.  I never object to paying to get into a museum as I believe in supporting cultural institutions.
