From Brooklyn, With Love
For over twenty-one years, we've hosted First Saturdays—monthly evenings of free programming welcoming visitors from central Brooklyn and beyond—at the Museum. We're continuing our commitment to bring art and culture to you. That's why, on April 4, starting at 5 pm, we take the celebration online! Join us for art-making, performance, and music, as we gather virtually with neighbors and people across the world to share the connective power of art and the vibrant creative community of Brooklyn.
