On March 10, 2006 the Sikh Sanghat reported, "Though various other cities, including San Francisco, Toronto and Washington have held major exhibitions of Sikh art, it is for the first time that there is going to be one in New York... [Dr. Caron Smith, Deputy Director and Chief Curator of Rubin Museum of Art, New York] is primarily a scholar of Japanese and Chinese art, but she has been increasingly engaging with India, and the art of the land and its people. Much of this comes from her association and friendship with the noted art-historian, Professor B.N. Goswamy. The forthcoming exhibition at the Rubin Museum will be titled, 'I Know no Stranger: Early Sikh Art and Faith'... The exhibition is scheduled to open in New York in September 2006... On view will be a hundred exhibits, including drawings, paintings, textiles, and objects... 'We will be taking some exhibits from India... and others from private collectors in America,' [Dr. Smith says.]"
