"Because of the Arts I..." - ELNYA @ BK Museum First Saturdays

  • Brooklyn Museum 200 Eastern Parkway Brooklyn, NY, 11238 United States (map)

Join ELNYA at the Brooklyn Museum's Target First Saturdays on April 1st! More info about First Saturdays here.

Ever wondered how museums, theatres, and other arts organizations can support free events like this one? In part, these incredible experiences are made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts, which is in danger of being eliminated based on the FY2018 budget being considered by Congress. Losing this agency could not only spell disaster for organizations that rely on NEA funding for vital operating and programmatic support, but also have a significant impact on the prioritization of the arts in our communities and our country.

This event invites participants to take a stand against the potential dismantling and defunding of the NEA. Pass by our table on Saturday night to get tips for contacting your representatives (and write postcards on the spot!), participate in a public art project about the impact of the arts on your life, and join our #SaveTheNEA selfie campaign.
