SUNDAY: Sketch the Rubin

SUNDAY, January  14th, 2024

The Rubin is an extraordinary museum dedicated to the art and cultures of the Himalayas, India and neighboring regions, with a really strong emphasis  on Tibetan art.  Every time I visit I’m struck by how deep the world of art is.  You could spend a lifetime exploring each wonderful path and alley. The Rubin is one such path.

This surprisingly large beautifully designed museum is a real NYC treasure.  Each item on display tells a story, and was lovingly collected and beautifully displayed. The Rubin Museum reminds us that artistic expression is part of what it means to be a human, a message that resonates for Urban Sketchers.


WHAT:  We will be sketching indoors at the Rubin Museum

WHEN:   The museum opens its doors at  11:00 AM​ on January 14, 2024.  Sleeping late?  Come anyway - we'll be there, ​. . . but you'll miss the astounding feeling of being nearly alone in a wonderful museum!

WHERE:  The Rubin is located at 150 W 17th St, NYC.  


There are loads of subways nearby: ,

 -   A, C, or E to 14th Street (at 8th Avenue)

-   1 to 18th Street (at 7th Avenue)

-   2, 3 to 14th Street (at 7th Avenue)

-   F, L, M to 14th Street (at 6th Avenue)

-   N, Q, R, 4, 5, 6 to 14th Street-Union Square

By Car:  Parking is difficult although there is no alternate side of the street parking on Sunday which makes things a little easier.

LUNCH:  12:30 PM  - The Museum has a wonderful cafeteria on the first floor, with interesting healthy dishes.  There are also many places to get food in the neighborhood. We’ll be eating together in their cafeteria.

AFTERNOON:  1:15 PM  Back to sketching..

SHOW AND TELL:  3:00 PM  Location to be determined - probably in the Rubin’s cafeteria.. This is the social part of our day where we will share our sketches, tell stories, and probably talk about art supplies.


-  Bring a stool - it gives you more options.
