Assistant Manager of Graphic Design & Production

About the Museum

The Rubin Museum explores and celebrates the diversity of Himalayan art, ideas, and

culture. With its globally renowned collection, the Rubin fosters understanding and

appreciation of this extraordinary region by connecting its art and ideas to contemporary

issues that are relevant in our visitors’ lives today. Aligned with ongoing research into

learning, behavior, and the brain, the Rubin offers innovative exhibitions and programs

that ask big questions and examine provocative ideas. Through our work, the museum

serves as a space for reflection and personal transformation, opening windows to inner

worlds so visitors can better navigate outer ones.

The Rubin’s collection of nearly 4,000 objects tells the story of 1,500 years of Himalayan

Art. Inspired by the ideas of Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism, Bon, and other religious

systems, Himalayan art is uniquely conceived as a tool for contemplation and mental

training, intended to help viewers develop awareness. We introduce our audiences to

these various religious and philosophical traditions and, in doing so, use art to spark

reflection, and shift perspectives.

The Rubin presents on-stage conversations, music, film, performances, as well as a

robust roster of other innovative educational initiatives. The ground floor provides a lively

nexus for conversation, shopping, refreshment, and dining. Anchored by its magnificent

staircase, the ground floor is free and open to all visitors and serves as a safe and

welcoming space for all.
