First Saturday Lite @ Brooklyn Museum
Kick off our season of First Saturday Lite—a low-key, free outdoor afternoon amplifying culture and community in our borough. In May, we’re celebrating springtime abundance with healing music and art-making inspired by Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And. Gyal Tings Soundsystem (featuring Felukah, Shirine Saad, Boston Chery, and Illexxandra) takes over the plaza steps with sounds from Cairo to Haiti, Kingston, and San Juan. Plus, shop and snack all day long at the Brooklyn Pop-Up market, which is spotlighting Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage and vendors who focus on wellness.
This outdoor event is free and open to the public. Please reserve tickets in advance to visit the galleries. A limited number of timed tickets will be available on-site on a first-come, first-served basis.
This event takes place outdoors. We’re following procedures and guidelines laid out by the CDC and local health officials, including practicing social distancing for all activities. Masks are required for all adults and children over the age of 2. Indoor restrooms will be available.
