SATURDAY: Sketch the Rubin


If you attended our first Winter Talk, it will be no surprise that we will be visiting the Rubin Museum this coming Saturday, December 17, 2022.  We’ll be starting a little later than usual since the Rubin doesn’t open until 11 AM.

In case you are not aware, the Rubin Museum celebrates the diversity and uniqueness of Himalayan art, ideas, and culture across history.  It is one of the city’s cultural hubs and caters to a diverse audience from connoisseurs, scholars, the general public and, of course, urban sketchers.  I find the  beautiful exotic art very exciting.  I’ve noticed people’s sketches seem to take interesting unusual directions under the influence of their collection.

What:   We will be sketching at the Rubin Museum 

Where:   150 W 17th St,  -  off Seventh Avenue
When:  Meet at 11 AM.  Sleeping late?  Come anyway - we’ll be there the whole day.

-   By Subway:  
• 14th St and 8th Ave - A, C, E train
• 14th St.  - 1,  2, 3 train
• 18th St - 1, 2 train

(See map below.)

Lunch:  1:00 PM .  Meet in the restaurant at street level.  Bring your own or rely on the numerous vendors and stores in the area   The museum has coffee and tee only.  The museum has asked us to take lunch a little later than our usual time so we don’t conflict with another group.

Afternoon:  1:45 PM  Back to sketching

Show and Tell:  3:00 PM - Meet back in the restaurant to share our work, tell stories and talk about the things artists talk about.

-     Bring a stool, it gives you more options.
