My friend and I went to the Brooklyn Museum (suggested admission price) to see the JR Chronicles. It is an exhibit replete with murals, photographs, videos, dioramas, etc. Photographs of monumental size stud the walls with subjects having fun making grotesque faces for the camera....More

The Brooklyn museum had some of the most beautiful exhibits, I particularly enjoyed the Titus Kaphar one. The take on classics was very refreshing. The Egyptian art too is very insightful. The huge interactive art in the front and the YO in yellow makes for...More

We took the subway from Union Square to get to Brooklyn---with the help of a friend, we eventually made it, and the museum is right outside the subway stop. It's a big place, and on Sunday we visited, you could pay what you wanted. My...More

We went to the Pierre Cardin expo here and were very pleased and educated by the display. Also enjoyed a few other parts of the permanet collection. This is a huge and important local gem of an institution.
