The Brooklyn Museum Community Committee, founded in 1948, is a group of dedicated volunteers working on behalf of the Museum. The Committee seeks to establish broader public support and increase Museum Membership by raising community awareness of the scope of the Museum’s collections, special exhibitions, and related activities and services for children and adults.
Community Committee meetings are held at the Museum on the third Wednesday of each month from September through May. In addition, the Executive Committee meets three or four times a year to coordinate events and activities and to address new projects or policies for the Committee.
All Community Committee members are required to be current Museum Members, to accept Committee assignments, and to support the activities and fund-raising enterprises of the Museum and the Committee. For more information, please call the Community Committee office at (718) 789-2493 or (718) 501-6286.
