An NYT article. and FYI anyone living in or near New York City.

Dear Members and Friends,      


A note to alert you to the article on page 24 of this weekend's New York Times Arts & Leisure section (dated August 7) by Kay Larson.  The column "A Close Reading" explores a painting of Tara now on view in the exhibition Female Buddhas: Women of Enlightenment in Himalayan Art at the Rubin Museum of Art.  Read the story of the Buddha who chose to be a woman, and then come to the Museum to enjoy the real thing.  


We hope you are having a wonderful summer and look forward to welcoming you again to RMA sometime soon.  Your support means a lot to all of us.

With best wishes 


Caron Smith

Deputy Director and Chief Curator

Rubin Museum of Art
