The annual Women in the Arts award is presented for outstanding achievement by a leading member of the arts community. Inaugurated in 2002, this award has been presented to women who have made significant contributions in the arts. Held each fall, the event features a program with the recipient that introduces her and her accomplishments to the Brooklyn Museum community, followed by a celebratory luncheon in our beautiful Beaux-Arts Court.
Proceeds benefit the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art and many of the educational and artistic programs offered by the Brooklyn Museum.
