Brooklyn Museum Reopens
The Brooklyn Museum reopens its doors, and lures families with a socially distant steel pan performance by Pan in Motion, led by composer and educator Kendall K. Williams. Plus, catch DJ sets by Sabine Blaizin, use chalk to draw on the plaza, and support local vendors with bites from Greedi Vegan, Island Pops, and Wadadli Jerk (2pm-5pm).
The sweeping multimedia exhibition JR: Chronicles has been extended through October 18, 2020. Later in the fall, the Museum will unveil newly renovated galleries for its decorative arts collection, as well as spotlight Brooklyn-based photographer and inaugural UOVO Prize winner John Edmonds in the artist's first solo museum exhibition.
The museum's first- and fifth-floor galleries are open Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 am-6 pm, with new extended hours on Fridays and Saturdays, to 8 pm.
Visitors are encouraged to reserve timed-entry tickets online and to review the comprehensive safety plan to know what to expect before arriving. Among other changes, physical distancing and face coverings will be required, and handwashing and sanitizing is encouraged throughout the building. The Museum Café and restaurant, The Norm, remain closed, and all in-person tours and indoor public programs are canceled through 2020.
