Education at the Rubin Museum

Look Deeply, Think Deeply, Feel Deeply

The Education Department at the Rubin Museum of Art fosters a deeper experience with the art of the Himalayas through close observation, discovery, thinking, and emotion. We encourage visitors to consider the interplay between art and culture, and to make personal connections to visual art through meaningful interactions. Through our educational programs, events, and activities, visitors are encouraged to look deeply, think deeply, feel deeply, and connect globally. To learn more about us visit our Education Blog.
