Considered one of the leading museums of the world, the Brooklyn Museum of Art holds an impressive place in the history of the arts in twentieth-century America through its active exhibition program, excellent comprehensive collection, and commitment to public service. The Museum is far from being a static treasure house; nothing, including the building itself, is ever finished at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Each collection, each department, has its own story, its own cast of characters, a chain of events – external and internal – that have charted or altered its course over the last century. This insight to the Museum was completed with the help of all the curators at the Museum.
