Brooklyn Museum Event, Co-Sponsored by DCNY & BADA

This DGALA event, co-sponsored by the Dartmouth Club of New York and BADA, is not to be missed!
Co-hosted by Amanda Rosenblum ’07 and Lizzy Hennessey ’09

First, we will visit the Brooklyn Museum to view the new Kehinde Wiley exhibit. Kehinde is a gay black NYC-based artist who paints portraits of people of color in heroic poses. The NY Times has called the exhibit “mind-teasing,” “eye-catching,” and “hard to ignore“; “His paintings reflect some of the problems and pleasures of being alive right now, in times fraught with corrosive bigotry and inequality.” (Smith, 2015). While there, you can also view the Chitra Ganesh: Eyes of Time exhibit on female power and, of course, the permanent collections.

We will then after-party next door beginning at 4pm at Bar Sepia (234 Underhill Avenue). Light appetizers will be provided! Drinks are on you; full bar available for very reasonable prices. If it’s nice out, we can hang out in the backyard. Kids are welcome at Bar Sepia until sundown and encouraged to attend this event!

Note on Pricing: Youth (19 and under) are free at the museum, Student and Senior admission is $10, and you can get in for no charge with a new NYC Municipal ID card. All others are $16.

Event Details: April 19th, 2pm to 6pm
