Barney’s to Buddha … WOW!

Opening October 2, the Rubin Museum of Art will turn a darkened Barney's in Chelsea to what the New York Times calls "a glittering showcase for a reclusive spiritual art from the other end of the earth." As the story goes, Donald Rubin, businessman and collector of Himalayan art, noticed the vacant building while stalled in a cab and immediately decided to turn it into a museum like no other. Six years later, this gift to curious minds should garner lots of good karma for Mr. Rubin.
