The Rubin Museum of Art
West Side Fest
Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023

For the inaugural West Side Fest this year, New Yorkers and visitors of all ages can enjoy free admission and access to all museum galleries, as well as activities like special artmaking workshops and tours, details below.

1:00–3:00 pm

Get creative and connect with your emotions and well-being! Join for a drop-in art workshop guided by art therapy graduate students from NYU’s Steinhardt Graduate School of Art Therapy. Art prompts are inspired by the Rubin Museum’s current exhibition, Death Is Not the End, and encourage self-reflection and discovery in a supportive environment. The program takes place in the lobby once you enter the Museum. All ages are welcome and no art experience is required. 

2:00 pm and 3:00 pm

Experienced guides lead you through the Rubin’s Death Is Not the End or Gateway to Himalayan Art exhibitions, highlighting specific artworks so that you can dive deeper. Tours meet in the lobby once you enter the Museum and last approximately 30 minutes.
