As NYC is currently covered in snow, one of our favorite art institutions, Brooklyn Museum, gives us a glimmer of hope in their programming for their Target First Saturdays series. In celebration of Women’s History Month, this weekend’s event is entitled “Women Changemakers”, featuring a slew of inspirational women in the creative realm. This is also an opportunity for guests to see the awe-inspiring exhibition, Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic. Here are my picks for the evening:
