    Images of Ground Zero

    Press Releases ?
    • August 2002: A series of remarkable photographs by New York Post staff photographer G. N. Miller taken in the chaos at Ground Zero on September 11 and 12, 2001, will be on view in the Grand Lobby of the Brooklyn Museum of Art from September 11 through October 14, 2002.

      Born in Brooklyn, award-winning photojournalist Gary Miller was a Rikers Island correction officer, then a detective for the New York Police Department, and later a detective for the Organized Crime Control Bureau before his law enforcement career was ended by a near fatal injury. He then returned to his first passion[,] photography. His work has also appeared in The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, People, and Newsweek magazines.

      In addition to this presentation of photographs, the Brooklyn Museum of Art will mark the first anniversary of September 11, 2001 by waiving admissions for the day as it did the day following the terrorist attacks. To honor the thousands who were lost, Museum staff and visitors will gather in the Hall of the Americas on the first floor to share in a solemn memorial. Gallery talks on September 11 and the following weekend will include tours of American Identities: A New Look and the Museum’s Islamic holdings. The program Stories & Art at 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 14, will focus on the theme of “Heroes.” Throughout the month of September visitors will be invited to share their feelings about last year’s attacks by making entries in notebooks available in the Grand Lobby and in the Education Galleries.

    "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"

    Prints, Drawings and Photographs

    Over the years, the collections of the Brooklyn Museum have been organized and reorganized in different ways. Collections of the former Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs include works on paper that may fall into other categories: American Art, European Art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, and Photography.
    The Brooklyn Museum Archives maintains a collection of historical press releases. Many of these have been scanned and made available on our Web site. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference. Please note that all the original typographical elements, including occasional errors, have been retained. Releases may also contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the informative text panels written by the curator or organizer. Called "didactics," these panels are presented to the public during the exhibition's run, and we reproduce them here for your reference and archival interest. Please note that any illustrations on the original didactics have not been retained, and that the text may contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the objects from the Brooklyn Museum collection that were in the installation.
