The annual Women in the Arts award is presented for outstanding achievement by a leading member of the arts community. Inaugurated in 2002, this award has been presented to women who have made significant contributions in the arts. Held each fall, the event features a program with the recipient that introduces her and her accomplishments to the Brooklyn Museum community, followed by a celebratory luncheon in the Museum’s beautiful Beaux-Arts Court.
Proceeds from the event support the many educational and artistic programs offered by the Museum and its Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
