CULTURE BRIEFS: 10/3

COMPILED BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK

TARGET FIRST SATURDAY

Join the Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Parkway) for its November installment of Target First Saturday – a free, all-day art and entertainment affair from 5 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, November 1.

Enjoy music (PitchBlack Brass Band, Meridian Lights, and more), a curator talk (Rujeko Hockley on Crossing Brooklyn), hands-on-art, film and more.

The Counter café (normally closed at 6 p.m.) will remain open all night and serve sandwiches, salads, and sweets, as well as wine and local beer. Parking is a flat rate of $5 starting at 5 p.m.

Some Target First Saturday activities take place in smaller and more intimate locations in the Museum, so you’ll need a ticket for those programs. Ticket lines often form 30 minutes before tickets are distributed at the Visitor Center (in the Rubin Lobby).

If you’re a member, pick up tickets from the Membership Desk while supplies last. For more information, visit www.brooklynmuseum.org.
