The Rubin Museum of Art (website) is a Museum in New York.
Official description from Rubin Museum of Art:
Founded in 1999 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit trust, the Rubin Museum of Art, the premier museum of Himalayan art in the Western world, opened to the public in October 2004. The museum is governed by an independent Board of Directors, which, with its professional staff, has led the museum to become universally recognized by newcomers and connoisseurs alike for showcasing the art of the Himalayan region. Through its collections and extensive public programming, the museum is a resource to the diverse communities that live in or travel to the New York region.
Wikipedia excerpt:
The Rubin Museum of Art (RMA) is a museum dedicated to the collection, display, and preservation of the art of the Himalayas and surrounding regions, especially that of Tibet. It is located at 150 West 17th Street between the Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Avenue) and Seventh Avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The Rubin Museum originated from a private collection of Himalayan art which Donald Rubin, the founder of the managed-health-care network MultiPlan Inc., and his wife Shelley had been assembling since 1974. In 1998, the Rubins purchased for $22 million the building that had been occupied by Barneys New York, a department store for designer fashion which had filed for bankruptcy. The building was remodelled as a museum by preservation architects Beyer Blinder Belle. The original 6-story spiral staircase was left intact to become the center of the 25,000 square feet (2,300 m2) of exhibition space.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.
