Rubin Museum of Art (150 West 17 Street)
Celebrating Losar, the Himalayan New Year, and 2018’s lunar sign, the Earth Dog, by painting with the most basic element: earth. Get down and dirty painting with mud and soil. Playing with dirt serves as a nostalgic exploration of the environment. Tibetans have used mud for art-making in the past, and we are reviving this element for the future. Also plant a Losar metok, Tibet’s winter flower. See how the metok grows over time.
Nearby Eat & Treats: Try seasonal specialties inspired by the Himalayas, including Thali plates and handmade traditional momo dumplings in peaceful Cafe Serai in the lobby. Kids menu available.
