Exciting Openings and Engaging Virtual Events This Fall



Despite the city’s shutdown, New York City continues to be a cultural center and a hub for artists, performers and visionaries. We have exciting virtual programs and physical re-openings that are sure to make your fall even more spectacular.


Brooklyn Museum

We reopened to the public on September 12 and were so excited to see a wonderful turnout from our visitors, cherished members, and surrounding community. In a time of great uncertainty and profound isolation, I'm hopeful that visitors will continue to look to the Museum to find comfort during these trying times, and that our exhibitions and many new programs that we've launched outside on our plaza remain a source of inspiration and fun.

Brooklyn Museum is once again open to the public! Book your timed tickets online and prepare for a safe visit.



Studio 54: Night Magic

March 13–November 8, 2020

Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing and Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery, 5th Floor


Studio 54: Night Magic traces the radiant history, social politics, and trailblazing aesthetics of the most iconic nightclub of all time. Behind the velvet rope, partygoers of all backgrounds and lifestyles could come together for nights of music, dazzling lights, and the popular song and dance “The Hustle.”

Art on the Stoop: Sunset Screenings

September 9–November 8, 2020, starts at 6 pm

Brooklyn Museum Plaza


NOTE: Screenings may be cancelled because of inclement weather.

We invite Brooklyn Museum visitors, neighbors, and passersby to an outdoor exhibition of major video artworks by artists in our collection, as well as key loans, exploring themes of power and uncertainty, distance and loss, and history’s hand in our present times. The artworks are presented in evening screenings on the Museum plaza—our “front stoop”—providing a safe place to gather, rest, and encounter art, while also acknowledging the critical role that public spaces play for idea-sharing, community-building, and democracy.
