Brooklyn Museum.

The Brooklyn Museum has received a major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the institution announced on Tuesday, April 26.

According to officials, the four-year, one million dollar grant will fortify and reenergize the museum’s curatorial direction as the museum – around since the early 1800’s – enters a new era under the leadership of Anne Pasternak.

According to Pasternak, the grant will play an important role in “coordinating a clear, unified vision among the institution’s curatorial staff,” while also providing a research travel fund that will strengthen museum programming and support future projects and endeavors.

Pasternak was dubbed the museum’s Shelby White and Leon Levy Director in September, 2015.

The Brooklyn Museum is located at 200 Eastern Parkway.
