Project Himalayan Art, The Rubin Museum of Art

This monumental initiative, which is now live, is the first project of its kind to offer comprehensive, introductory resources for learning about Himalayan art, with a focus on the cross-cultural exchange of Tibetan, Himalayan, and Inner Asian art and cultures. It features an expansive digital platform, traveling exhibition to university museums, and a cross-disciplinary publication featuring essays from 72 international scholars. The new digital platform is a hub to dive into the world of Himalayan art, including for students, teachers, scholars, or visitors looking to expand their understanding of Himalayan art and cultures. It features materials from the traveling exhibition, which opened this month at its first venue, Lehigh University Art Galleries, 108 object essays from the publication (available to pre-order today), videos, 360-degree object views, an interactive map, a glossary of hundreds of definitions, over 1,000 object images, and much more!
