The following article is from the Spring, 1987 issue of the Snow Lion Newsletter and is for historical reference only. You can see this in context of the original newsletter here.

On Staten Island is housed one of the finest collections of Tibetan art in the US. The Jacques Marchais Center of Tibetan Art offers an outstanding program of talks, performances, and demonstrations illustrating the arts and culture of Asia. This past year the permanent exhibitions have been reorganized, public services have been expanded and improved, and visiting hours have been increased. They also have a gift shop containing rugs, woodblock prints, jewelry, clothing, as well as ceremonial and decorative objects from Nepal and Tibet. Guided tours are available. If you plan a visit to New York City and have the time, we suggest that you visit the museum. It is located at 338 Lighthouse Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10306, 718-987-3478.
