The Brooklyn Museum hosts its tenth annual Women in the Arts luncheon, honoring Yoko Ono. The program in the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium will be followed by a reception and luncheon in the Beaux-Arts Court.

Yoko Ono is a multimedia artist whose thought-provoking work challenges people’s understanding of art and the world around them.
