Virtual Art History Happy Hour

Learn about our Land Acknowledgment and reimagined American Art galleries, which open with an introduction to Lenapehoking, the ancestral homeland of the Lenape (Delaware) people—Brooklyn’s original inhabitants. Join Nancy Rosoff, Andrew W. Mellon Senior Curator, Arts of the Americas, and Joe Baker, co-founder and Executive Director of the Lenape Center, for a closer look at these projects and their role in our ongoing partnership with Lenape and Delaware leaders.

This program is free to stream on Facebook Live. Or, pay what you wish to join us on Zoom and participate in a Q&A with the speaker after the talks. Your contribution supports our dynamic public programs and events.

Captioning for this program is available on Zoom. To request additional accommodations, such as American Sign Language interpretation, email us at access@brooklynmuseum.org.
