NEW YORK (AP) - New York’s Rubin Museum of Art will present artworks from its collection that highlight the cultural heritage of Nepal.

The museum says the special art installation will include Nepalese objects that reflect that country’s contribution to Buddhist and Hindu art.

It’s free to the public and opens on Monday.

The museum also plans a series of other events and education programs in response to the earthquake that hit the South Asia region last month.

It has created a dedicated website where people can obtain information about making donations for victims of the earthquake.

The Rubin Museum is dedicated to the art of the Himalayas, India and neighboring regions.
