Trailblazers: Women in the Arts awards are presented annually to the most fearless women making an impact on the arts, culture, and philanthropy today. The event features a breakfast reception, an exhilarating and important conversation with our honorees, and a seated luncheon. Contributions support the Brooklyn Museum and its Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art’s educational and artistic programs.

Fund for African American Art Annual Benefit supports our Fund, founded in 2010, that supports and encourages purchases and gifts of precontemporary art by leading African American artists. The Fund enables us to represent the depth of African American artistic practice over the course of two centuries more fully and permanently than any other New York museum.

Brooklyn Artists Ball has emerged as an engaging and unique way to celebrate the borough’s contributions to the arts.

Sackler Center First Awards are presented by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art to honor women who are first in their fields.
