Culture yourself at the Rubin Museum, where art meets nightlife. Always a hub of well curated exhibitions, great music and social events at their finest, the Rubin offers a lot in the way of fun and food.
Currently on exhibit is “The first major exhibition to present the origins, history and practice of a millennium of visual history, Bodies in Balance explores the guiding principles of the Tibetan science of healing represented in medical paintings, manuscripts, and medical instruments.”Next time you feel a cold coming on, perhaps a visit to the Rubin before your doctor might be enlightening? A compliment to this exhibition is the film “A Gesar’s Bard’s Tale” playing Wednesday, May 28.
CaféSerai and The Rubin Museum Shop admission is free. So, indulge in artisan goods from the Himalayas and authentic dishes like Buddhist Chickpea & Paneer Salad and Chicken Tikka Masala whether you decide to check out the artwork or not.
Museum admission is free Fridays from 6:00pm to 10:00 p.m. during K2 Nights where a DJ spins and drinks are served along with a Pain-Asian tapas menu of food. Tours are also held at 7pm in addition to film screenings at 9:30pm with a famous guest presenter.
The Rubin recently made news for bringing back the Dream-Over, a sleepover for adults in the museum where you sleep under a special piece of artwork picked out especially for you. Not surprisingly, May’s Dream-Over is already sold out.
Not to worry though; because no matter when you drop by there’s always something going on.
