Rubin Museum

This weekend I had a visit to a museum that I've never been before called the Rubin Museum. The Rubin Museum, on West 17th Street in Chelsea is a museum of Himalayan art. I'm not very good at describing things, so here is a quote from their website, "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." It's a cool place!

I too, like the way you worked with the light, but also caught the reflection of the spiral staircase, forming a geometric pattern framing one of the displays! That is a part of the world most know only though the Western eyes of the mountain climbers or in the mythical kingdom in literature, "Shangri-La." A new museum to me, and one worth a look.
