On now: “Must-See Week” allows you to purchase: 2-for-1 tickets to many NYC museums.
Until February 10th, save when you see exhibits at MoMA The Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), The Rubin Museum of Art, Cooper Hewitt, Brooklyn Museum, The Museum of the City of New York – and Staten Island’s Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art:
The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art (at 338 Lighthouse Ave) preserves and exhibits the art and culture of Tibet to a world audience:
“In her lifetime, Jacques Marchais amassed a collection of over one thousand objects. The collection includes sculpture, ritual objects, musical instruments, thangkas or scroll paintings and furniture. The objects are primarily from Tibet, Nepal, northern China, and Mongolia, and a few items are from Southeast Asia. The Museum was chartered in 1945, the same year the first of the two buildings was completed. The collection has been on view to the public since the Museum’s official opening in 1947. The Museum maintains a permanent exhibition of more than 125 objects and presents rotating exhibits that highlight specific examples of Tibetan and Himalayan culture.”
A number of our galleries carry treasures from Mongolia, Tibet and Nepal- and more.
