In 2011, the Rubin became the first museum to host on-site overnight parties. Now, their annual Dream-over event sells out within hours, drawingsingle and coupled-up explorers to sleep under beloved art works. Show up in your pajamas and find your specifically-selected sleeping space and corresponding work of art, as chosen based on the answers to your "Dreamlife questionnaire." Then, join discussions on the meaning of dreams and their significance in Tibetan Buddhist philosophy with Khenpo Lama Pema Wangdak and the New York Psychoanalytic Society's Dr. William Braun, followed by a midnight snack, lullabies and bedtime stories. After perusing centuries-old Himalayan art and ritual artifacts and sleeping in the presence of one hundred Buddhas, you'll awake on Sunday morning to interpret your nighttime visions with pro dream gathering specialists, and talk it over light breakfast with your new friends. Not a bad way to absorb culture.
Tickets go on sale August 14.
