The Brooklyn Museum has an amazing tradition: on the first Saturday of every month they are open until 11pm for an entirely free night of programming including art, music, dance and more.
It’s an event most Brooklynites (and visitors from other boroughs) look forward to each month, and the museum just announced they are not ending while everyone’s staying at home!
“As you know, we’re not a quiet museum—we’re a hub for creativity and community—and this week is no different,” they shared in an email newsletter today, March 31. “For the first time in twenty-one years, First Saturday has gone virtual! Starting at 5pm on April 4, tune in live on Facebook or Zoom to dance, sing, and be joyous, and know that we’ll be right there with you.”
Though they haven’t noted specifics, they’ve promised “art-making, performance, and music, as [they] gather virtually with neighbors and people across the world to share the connective power of art and the vibrant creative community of Brooklyn.”
