Waste No More: Brooklyn Museum Clothing Swap

Saturday, April 20, 2024

11 am–2 pm

Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Pavillion, 1st Floor; Beaux-Arts Court, 3rd floor


Clean out your closet and refresh your wardrobe for summer with us and Bed-Stuy Clothes Swap (BSCS)! Through this inclusive and eco-conscious clothing swap celebrating Earth Day, we can make a positive impact on the planet while embracing community, style, and sustainability.

Bring your new or gently used clothes, accessories, and shoes for all seasons and participate in our vibrant exchange organized by BSCS. You can contribute and take home up to 10 items, but if you have more to share, rest assured they will be lovingly donated to those in need. While our collection predominantly features feminine-presenting apparel, we’re actively working to diversify our offerings. Your participation can help us achieve this goal!

The swap will take place in our first-floor Pavilion from 11 am to 2 pm. In the Beaux-Arts Court, join a sound bowl meditation led by Ghetto Heaven NYC from 12 to 1 pm, as well as a discussion on reimagining third spaces in NYC, led by Josh Odam of Healing While Black, from 1 to 2 pm.

Free; registration is encouraged.
