After we disembarked from our train Saturday afternoon in New York’s Penn Station, my sister-in-law and our daughter took off to participate in a Haitian dance class, not something for Bill and me.  Instead, we started our afternoon walking through the Rubin Museum of Art, where Himalayan art is the focus.  As my sister-in-law pointed out, the museum is a small jewel at 150 W. 17th Street.  Take a few minutes and enjoy a few of the art objects that caught my eye and camera.  If you live in the New York area, stop by soon for a visit.  You won’t be disappointed.

  1. Great art. Great shots.
    The first pic looks like me when i used to call my kids after they broke something and ran out of the house.
    The second pic is gruesome.
    Ah, the third pic – that’s me on too much root beer 😉

    Thanks for sharing!!!!! looks like a great time. Randy

    • Thanks for starting my morning with a laugh, Randy. As you saw on Bill’s blog, we did have some great root beer this weekend near our motel in Philly. The whole weekend was excellent.

      Enjoy your day!

  2. What a lot of formidable-looking creatures! Amazing art.

    • “Formidable” is a good word for much of it, Sharon. My s-i-l’s friend had a photo exhibit of burial mounds and the adornments that go on them but we weren’t allowed to take pictures of any of that. Her shots were beautiful.

      This isn’t the art I like most but it was the perfect amount and lovely examples of the various kinds of art.

  3. Well, the skeleton pic is my fav and it would make a great entry for the Friday Fictioneers.

    Love the Rubin – I always feel good when I go there – it’s far away now, but I”ll be back.

  5. […] So I took a break for two things I love the most: tea and reading. I chose a tea given to me as a gift by one of my sisters-in-law on our recent whirlwind trip to New York City:  (https://sustainabilitea.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/trekking-on-the-tracks/ and https://sustainabilitea.wordpress.com/2013/04/02/art-of-the-himalayas/.)
