Pop-Up Talks: Art, Literacy, and the Environment

Saturday, May 18, 2024

1–2 pm

Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing and Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery, 5th Floor

Listen to pop-up talks and view zines by adult literacy students, who will share reflections on art, the environment, and our changing city. This special gallery experience showcases the creativity of adult basic education and high school equivalency students enrolled in classes at Family Health Centers at NYU Langone, Project Reach Youth. 

In the weeks leading up to this event, the participants discussed works in our collections and exhibitions, including Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo (feat. Takashi Murakami), and responded to these discussions by creating zines. 

The Brooklyn Museum’s art-making partnerships for adult literacy students grew out of a 2021 collaboration with ESOL teacher Caryn T. Davis. 

Free with Museum admission.
