The video of the Guerrilla Girls performing and accepting their award at the Brooklyn Museum’s fifth annual Women in the Arts event on November 9th, 2007 is now posted! Included in the video is a “Q&A” session with the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center’s very own (and an honorary Guerrilla Girl herself) Maura Reilly. Thank you to the Guerrilla Girls for giving such an inspiring and eye opening presentation, and thank you Robert Nardi for making the video available to the public!
