Lions Roar : July 2014
The Buddhas of West 17th The art, spirituality, and ideas of the Himalayas meet the best of the modern world at New York’s Rubin Museum L ocated in the fashionable Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, the Rubin Museum is not just the world’s leading museum dedicated to the ideas, cultures, and art of the Himalayas. It’s also a hot spot of innovative, contemporary programming. It was founded a decade ago by the husband-and-wife team of Donald and Shelley Rubin, philanthropists and art collectors who donated well over a thousand pieces from their personal col- lection. As Donald Rubin says, “We have always seen art as a source of joy, inspiration, and healing. I also see it as a means of positive social change and cultural education.” Today, under the leadership of Tim McHenry, the museum’s director of public pro- grams and performances, the Rubin offers a unique combination of art exhibits, con- temporary cultural events, and dialogues that bring together diverse voices exploring topics from happiness to neuroscience to The Tibetan Book of the Dead. Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the Shambhala Sun presents a sampling of the stimulating dia- logues the Rubin Museum has hosted and the extraordinary art it has showcased.
