SATURDAY: Sketch the Brooklyn Museum

 


In any other city it would be the major cultural center.  In New York City, the Brooklyn Museum is our forgotten treasure.  The museum is home to an exquisite collection housed in a fabulous Beaux Arts building.   Anywhere you choose to sketch you'll have a wonderful subject.


The Egyptian collection is world renowned as are many of the Asian art collections.  The American decorative Arts collection is endless and the colonial homes and period rooms on the top floor are fascinating.  To say nothing of the permanent installation of Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party". ( a MUST see if you haven't ever done so!) And on and on it goes! 


But wait there's more....now there are two terrific shows up: Thierry Muggler and Jimmy DeSanna.  You can find out more about these and many other temporary and permanent collections by visiting the web site: https://www.brooklynmuseum.org
