Target First Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum
Oct 3, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm| Free
Celebrate the diversity of Hispanic and Latino/a communities in Brooklyn and beyond through music, performance, film and word as inspired by our exhibition Impressionism and the Caribbean: Francisco Oller and his Transatlantic World (which opens October 2, 2015). The evening highlights include a performance by Gregorio Uribe Big Band (see photo) presented in partnership with Berklee College of Music, a reading by Raquel Cepeda, poetry by Caribbean fellows from Cave Canem and Honduran band Aurelio as a part of Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concert Series. Other programs include a kids corner with singing, creative movement and music making to popular Latin American songs, a book club, hands-on art where you can paint a still live of unexpected objects inspired by the works and life of Francisco Oller, pop-up gallery talks and more. Some programs have limited space and are ticketed on a first-come, first-served basis. Check out our website for more details.
