Back in March 2018 (𝘁𝗼𝗹𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗲 𝘄𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗯𝘂𝘀𝘆!), we met with Joe DeCillis, a volunteer at the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, in preparation for our volunteer of the month campaign that ran two years ago.

During our interview, DeCillis said volunteering gives him the chance to meet people from all over the world, learn new things, and participate in something worthwhile that benefits the community. In his spare time, he volunteers at his church, attends opera classes at the Garibaldi-Meucci Museum and also participates in meditation classes at the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art.

Dear Friends,

When Jacques Marchais built the Museum 75 years ago, she envisioned it to be a uniquely peaceful retreat. And while we are temporarily closed due to COVID-19, we look forward to re-opening and welcoming you all back.

During this time, would you consider a donation to the Tibetan Museum? Funds raised will help us continue to offer programs virtually; begin our socially distant, outdoor classes; and support the operations on the Museum until we can safely reopen to visitors.

The mission of The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art is to present the art, culture and history of Tibet to the public in an effort to include the contributions of this ancient culture into contemporary conversations about global interdependence and understanding. In doing so ...

One of the authors of the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art's Treasury Catalog, Nima Dorjee, sat down with Meg Ventrudo to give us background on how it came to be, and shine a light on some of the artifacts on display that day.
Thanks for the great slide show today, Meg!

Awesome dance and music performance today by the Sri Lankan Dance Academy of NY - I enjoyed the varied dances, beautiful costumes, and different percussive instruments. Staten Island has the largest Sri Lankan population in the United States, a fact of which I was previously unaware.
Thank you to NY State Women!
