In addition to its permanently installed collections, The Brooklyn Museum is offering two special exhibitions this summer.
"American Art From the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert A. Goldstone” surveys late 19th and early 20th century American art with 129 paintings, watercolors and drawings. Works by Hopper, Pascin and Stella are particularly well represented and special emphasis is given to members of The Eight. Also included in this show, which will remain open through September 12, are a group of European and American sculptures. A fully illustrated catalogue is available for $2.00.
“Twelve Years of Collecting: 1953 to 1965" presents 150 prints and drawings dating from the 16th century to the present. The graphics were selected from major gifts and purchases made by the Department of Prints and Drawings over the past twelve years. The exhibition, on view until December 26, includes important examples by both European and American artists.
Nearly 2000 objects from the Museum’s extensive collections of New World Indian art are on view in the recently opened Hall of the Americas. This permanent exhibition covers a period of 5000 years and shows the colorful and exotic art of Indian peoples from the Arctic to the Argentine.
For those who enjoy classical music, free concerts are held every Sunday in the Museum’s Auditorium Court beginning at 2:00 p.m.
