The Rubin Museum has it's annual block party this Sunday. The "official" activities start at 1 PM, but in past years I've enjoyed sketching while everything gets set up. The Block Party happens right in front of the Museum at 150 West 17th and extends for the whole block.
For anyone unfamiliar , the Rubin Museum of Art promotes understanding, and inspires personal connections to the ideas, cultures, and art of Himalayan Asia.
The Museum is open and free all day, so this is a rain or shine event.
Personal Note: I'm teaching Sunday morning and will coming from Gowanus. I probably can't get there until about 1:30. It's also Father's Day and I'll be leaving to celebrate with Family at 3:30. Don't wait for me. Anyone on 17th Street with a sketchbook is almost certainly an Urban Sketcher - feel free to say hi.
