    • November 6, 1930: To the Editor:

      Long Island and Brooklyn Artists are being given a special exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum beginning Saturday, November 22nd, and continuing through until the first of the year. This is the first exhibition of this kind that has been held at the Museum as far as the records show. The work is that of living men who have their residences or studios on the Island. This exhibition is in line with the plans the Museum has to extend its facilities allover the Island and provide special travelling shows to visit communities which show an interest in the kind of thing the Museum has to offer.

      Appended is a list of the artists who make up the exhibition. (We have added their address so that the papers in the different communities can pick those represented from their community)

      We should also like to call your attention to the fact that Miss Jean Page of the Museum Staff will give a talk on the Exhibition over Station WNYC at 7:10 P.M. on Friday, December 5th.

      Very truly yours,

    • November 12, 1930: To the Art Editor:

      It will not be possible to have an advance review by your department before the Morning of November 19th, as the material for the next painting exhibition will not be on hand and in reviewable shape until then. However, we are doing our best to have it ready by Wednesday, so that the review can appear in the Sunday edition on the 23rd, two days after the opening.

      This new exhibition will be the work of living artists whose residence or studios are in Brooklyn or on Long Island.

      We hope that you will be able to come for an advance review but in any case we will hope to see you at the opening which is on Friday the 21st with the usual afternoon tea.

      Very truly yours,

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
