Brooklyn Artists Ball

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

7 pm

Online and at Home

Join us for a virtual version of the Brooklyn Artists Ball as we honor the Brooklyn-based artist known as KAWS. This year’s program features remarks by Brian Donnelly as well as special performances by groundbreaking guitarist Kaki King, Judith Hill with members of the Grammy Award–winning ensemble Snarky Puppy, and more to be announced.

Your support of the Brooklyn Artists Ball provides critical funding that helps the Museum fulfill its mission to be a home for inspiring art and courageous conversations, every day.

Tickets start at $100, and contributions at $1,500 and above include special gifts and benefits. 

Reserve your spot now! For more information, email us at brooklynartistsball@brooklynmuseum.org.

We have also partnered with ART FOR CHANGE and artists Devan Shimoyama and Allison Zuckerman to commission two new, limited edition prints to benefit the Brooklyn Museum. Visit their website for more information; for purchase inquiries, please email hello@artforchange.com.
