US – Large crowds of mask-wearing, socially-distanced folks came together on Saturday to celebrate the reopening of Brooklyn Museum.
The museum shuttered its doors six months ago due to the coronavirus pandemic and staff have been planning a safe reopening for months. To celebrate, food, music and family-friendly activities filled the museum’s plaza over the weekend.
Pan in Motion — led by composer and educator Kendall K. Williams — put on a steel pan performance, while Sabine Blaizin got the crowd moving with his DJ sets. Both children and adults picked up chalk and transformed the plaza into their personal canvas, filling it with colorful drawings and quotes. Meanwhile, local food vendors Greedi Vegan, Island Pops and Wadadli Jerk cooked up a storm for the festivities.
