Rubin Museum of Art
The Rubin Museum of Art (RMA) is home to a comprehensive collection of art from the Himalayas and surrounding regions. The artistic heritage of this vast and culturally varied area of the world remains relatively obscure. Through changing exhibitions and an array of engaging public programs, RMA offers opportunities to explore the artistic legacy of the Himalayan region and to appreciate its place in the context of world cultures.

Pema Rinzin paints a mural of the Buddhist Guardian Kings of the Four directions. Pema Rinzin on his personal decision to paint the Four Great Guardian Kings: “They are unique imagery in that they are solid; they are protectors; and they are closest to our human form. For example, in Tibet at the largest monasteries like Drepung, all the Guardian Kings are in the front of the monastery. I thought they would also protect us here in the United States and at the Rubin Museum.
