The Brooklyn Museum will be partnering with Brooklyn artists to celebrate the 'Brooklyn Artists Ball.' This new twist on the Museum's longstanding annual gala will celebrate the creativity and considerable influence of Brooklyn artists. The Museum will honor Brooklyn-based artists Fred Tomaselli, Lorna Simpson and Fred Wilson, as well as retiring Brooklyn Museum Chair, Norman M. Feinberg. The Brooklyn Artist's Ball will commence at 6:00 pm with a special VIP cocktail reception hosted by Honorary Co-Chair Sarah Jessica Parker in the Great Hall, amid a space-altering, site-specific architectural installation created by Situ Studio. Also exhibited in the Great Hall will be a pulsating animated video environment by Brooklyn-based video artist and designer Sean Capone. Following the cocktail reception a sumptuous seated dinner will take place in the Museum's Beaux-Art Court, with table environments uniquely designed by Brooklyn-based artists.
