Rubin Museum Annual Block Party: A Day of Art and Artists

Every first Sunday of the month, The Rubin Museum hosts their Family Sundays (presently online). These are art-making workshops for children ages 3 and older (and their accompanying adults).

This Sunday (September 6th), you can join an afternoon of activities that both kids and grownups will enjoy. The theme is “Dissolving Fears“.

The Rubin Museum will also be holding its Annual Block Party, online, on Sunday, September 20th at Noon.

“Inspired by the Rubin’s yearlong exploration of impermanence—the idea that everything changes, so possibility is all around us—and the symbol of the lotus, this year’s Block Party reminds us that beauty can emerge from even the toughest conditions.”

At the virtual Block Party, you’ll enjoy more art-making projects for all ages – as well as interactive classes with Ajna Dance! Visual artists in the Himalayan region and diaspora will take part: Tsherin Sherpa, Sneha Srethsa, Tenzin Phuntzog, Yakpo Collective, and Uttam Grandhi. And there will be performances from Brooklyn Raga Massive, Sonam Kids and Asian American Writers’ Workshop.

On Sunday, September 20, visit their Virtual Block Party page to join. (The activities will be accessible through September 27.)
