For her table design, Kimberley Hart will present Thank you, Eugene Schieffelin. Touching on notions surrounding the confluence of the built and natural worlds, debates over Nature vs. Nurture and the assimilation of the “other”, Ms. Hart creates an allegory inspired by her son’s namesake, the Starling. Starlings were first introduced into Central Park by the American Acclimitization Society in an attempt to bring every bird species mentioned in the works of William Shakespeare's to North America. This resulted in what some perceive as an environmental disaster. Courtesy of the Artists and Mixed Greens, NY.
On Wednesday evening, April 18, 2012, the Brooklyn Museum will host its annual fundraising gala, the Brooklyn Artists Ball. This year’s ball will celebrate women artists and recognize the fifth anniversary of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. Guests will dine at table environments created for the occasion by sixteen Brooklyn women artists selected by the Museum’s curators. Each artist will transform a 40-foot-long table into a new work of art that will be on view for one night only.
