Prize sponsor spotlight: Brooklyn Museum

Kinda sorta last-minute, but tomorrow's tremendous quiz—our first NYC event for the public in more than a month, if you can believe it—has another prize sponsor, and this is a juicy one: the Brooklyn Museum.

Perfectly located at the center of highbrow and day-to-day culture, the Brooklyn Museum earns its name by being the best art institution in all of the Borough of Kings. Some current highlights:

Raw/Cooked: Ulrike Müller: Courtesy of homegrown Brooklyn artist, this is a "collaborative drawing project based on the inventory list of the feminist T-shirt collection at the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Park Slope." New York rules. Incidentally, on the feminist tip, the museum is home to Judy Chicago's legendary The Dinner Party, the massive ceremonial banquet with places for dozens of key women from throughout history. (Trivia note: When the work was completed in 1979, the only guest who was still living was Georgia O'Keeffe.)


Question Bridge: Black Males: This video installation, made from interviews with 150 African-American men from throughout the U.S., weaves together more than 1,000 verbal exchanges into an ongoing question-answer chain.

The Mummy Chamber: What more do I need to say? The museum's ancient-Egyptian holdings are world-class.

Visible Storage: Just what it sounds like. Peek behind the scenes of the workings of a museum via the plethora of the museum's holdings.

And lest we forget…Target First Saturdays. Once a month (take a guess what day), the museum opens its doors for free for art, entertainment, culture, dancing, you name it. I've been several times, and I can boldly state that they are some of the most wonderfully cross-cultural gatherings I've ever attended, even by the standards of cross-cultural central Brooklyn.

And yes, the museum is a sponsor of tomorrow night's Brooklyn BQT at Littlefield. Free passes for some lucky culturemongers. It pays to have good taste, I always say.
