UPDATE: All programs and events at the Brooklyn Museum are postponed or canceled with the closure of the museum until further notice.
Brooklyn’s premier institution is a less-crowded alternative to Manhattan’s bigger-name spaces, though the innovative and impactful items found inside are just as important as anything you'll find in the city. The museum, found on the edge of the sprawling Prospect Park, has a large holding of Egyptian art as well as the famous feminist piece, The Dinner Party, by Judy Chicago. Works by such Impressionists masters as Cézanne, Monet and Degas are also included in the collection along with with prime examples of Early American Art, period rooms and so much more.

“Jacques-Louis David Meets Kehinde Wiley”
Often given pride of place in the Brooklyn Museum’s lobby, Kehinde Wiley's Napoleon Leading the Army over the Alps from 2005 is a vivid re-conception of Jacques-Louis David’s 1801 masterpiece of the same name. In his version, Wiley has supplanted the...Contemporary art Wednesday April 1 2020 - Sunday May 10 2020

I love going to the Brooklyn Museum. They have a whole section that contains Feminist art, as well as being the permanent home to Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party." Their permanent collection is great (I believe they have one of the largest collections of African art) and they also have great exhibitions. One of my favorites was the Ai Wei Wei show.
This museum focuses much more on diversity than most other institutions I've been to in New York, and that makes for a really unique experience every time I go. I just went and see the Coney Island exhibit before it closed, and it was pretty fascinating to see all that work by Weegee and a New York era I never knew. You know, the one where it was cool to call people freaks and pay money to stare at them, and when no one had AC so you HAD to go to the beach. My favorite part of the museum is the feminist art section—Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party is a marvel that I explore every time. They also have themed days where you can see all sorts of free talks, performances and comedy every first Saturday of the month.
