Verbal Description and Sensory Tour December 12, 2013; 2-3PM The Rubin Museum offers verbal description and touch tours for visitors who are blind or partially sighted. These free tours, which include museum admission, are one hour in length and take visitors on a journey that weaves together the culture, history, religion, and art of the Himalayas. The tour on December 12th will feature the 2nd floor exhibition, Gateway to Himalayan Art. Gateway to Himalayan Art acquaints visitors with the principal concepts of Himalayan art and its cultural contexts. A large multimedia map orients visitors to the geographic scope and diversity of the Himalayan region and adjacent cultural areas that comprise the greater Himalayan cultural sphere, including parts of India, China, and Mongolia. From there, visitors are invited to explore four main sections: Figures and Symbols, Materials and Techniques, Purpose and Function, and Tibetan Art in Context, which includes the Rubin Museum's Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room. Museum guides are specially trained to lead these tours, which allow participants to form visualizations of the art through close, careful descriptions as well as touch objects like sculptures, art materials, woodblocks, and ritual implements. Verbal description and sensory tours take place on a new day, the first Saturday of every month. Reservations are required as space is limited so please contact the reservations office by phone, 212.620.5000 x336, or by email, email@example.com in advance of your visit.

Bill Brooks, Edd Clark and Steven Tharp return in December with A Three Tenor Christmas! The Christmas show is filled with the exciting arrangements, humor and great singing that the 3 Tenors have become known for. The arrangements are by music director Paul Stephan, and feature Billy Joel’s He’s Right on Time, Ann Hampton-Callaway’s God Bless My Family, and perennial holiday favorites The Merry Christmas Polka, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Winter Wonderland, and Oh Holy Night. David Finkle wrote “…how much room is there for three new tenors who’ve decided to goose their disparate careers by banding together? You’d better make room…they could be booked immediately into the best rooms in the country” and Jerry Osterberg from Cabaret Scenes said “The primary thing to say about these singers is that their voices, both singly and collectively, are fantastic!”
