Mission, Values & Reports

Rubin Museum of Art

Mission & Values

The Rubin Museum of Art is a dynamic environment that stimulates learning, promotes understanding, and inspires personal connections to the ideas, cultures, and art of Himalayan Asia.



Visitors are at our core. We share with all communities our collection and broadly conceived exhibitions as a catalyst for dialogues about art and culture.


We believe in taking an open and active approach to engaging learners at all levels and helping them to understand our world. We do this by encouraging deep connections and transformational experiences in a welcoming, enjoyable, and beautiful environment.


We encourage creativity, innovation, and risk-taking, as well as excellence, transparency, and collegiality in all that we do.


As stewards of an increasingly significant collection of art from Himalayan Asia, we are dedicated to its preservation, display, and study and to advance this field of art and cultural understanding.
