BLOCK PARTY brings together the elements of the iconic Brooklyn block party all under one roof, including a series of dimensional stoops set against a backdrop of artistic facades of residential buildings, and different ”street” and green spaces to play games, meet friends, relax, and have fun. Large-scale photographs by Brooklyn-based artist Anderson Zaca, who has long documented block parties in Brooklyn, will be featured and invoke the joy, action, and diversity of block parties celebrated annually across neighborhoods in New York City. Families will be invited to add to the photographs, and record their own images and experiences in the city among those of their neighbors.

Brooklyn Children’s Museum Summer Camp Exhibition

Lobby Gallery
On view now

You’re invited to visit a special exhibit in BCM’s lobby showcasing projects created by the Museum’s Summer Camp at PS 189! Last summer in the Arts & Culture Program, campers explored the traditions of West Africa and Mexico and were inspired to create their own weavings, painted tiles, and engraved tin art. In the STEM and Neuroscience Program, campers explored the inner workings of the brain and mind through hands-on activities and experiments and learned how scientists approach problem solving.  Help us celebrate the hard work of our campers and learn more about the interdisciplinary curriculum that draws on the exhibits and collections of the Museum.
