SATURDAY: Sketch the Egyptian Collection

My best guess is that it's going to be too cold to sketch outside, which is a disappointment.  However it's a good time to treat ourselves sketching one of the largest and finest Egyptian Collections in the United States.  We'll be at the Brooklyn Museum on the third floor in the Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Galleries.

Although our focus is going to be on the Egyptian rooms feel free to roam the museum.  The Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power show looks particularly interesting.

WHERE:   The Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY

Students and Seniors with valid ID - $10

  1. Here's what it says on the Brooklyn Museum website: The general admission prices are suggested contribution amounts and are not applicable to special ticketed exhibitions. ...
    There are currently no ticketed exhibitions on view.

    1. In other words, it's a pay-what-you-wish situation.
