Rubell Museum

The Rubell Family Collection was one of the first private museums of contemporary art in America, a phenomenon that's been growing more prominent around the world. Mera and Don Rubell were among the first to acquire work by renowned contemporary artists, supporting them at a critical moment in their careers, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cecily Brown, Keith Haring, Rashid Johnson, Hayv Kahraman, Jeff Koons, William Kentridge, Yoshitomo Nara, Cindy Sherman, and Mickalene Thomas, among others. The result is a wonderfully expansive and deep collection that reveals both resonances and dissonances.
