Tickets for Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern are discounted to $12 during Target First Saturdays (discounted tickets available in advance and on-site).

In 2017, Target First Saturdays highlight female-identified and gender-nonconforming artists as part of A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism at the Brooklyn Museum.

Visit The Norm restaurant or our Café. Parking is a flat rate of $6 starting at 5 p.m. (All other Saturdays, we close at 6 p.m.)

Some Target First Saturday programs take place in more intimate locations, so you’ll need a ticket. Lines often form one hour before ticket distribution at the Admissions Desk. Members can pick up tickets from our Membership Desk while supplies last. We do our best to keep listings as up-to-date as possible, but sometimes last-minute program changes are unavoidable.

Have a performance, film, or activity you’d like to present? Submit a proposal or email us.
