This year’s Brooklyn Artist’s Ball, the annual fundraising gala for the Brooklyn Museum, raised over $1.5 million to support the institution’s exhibition and education programs. On April 17th, over 700 guests from the art, philanthropy, business and music worlds gathered at the museum, this year decked out to match its buzzy David Bowie retrospective, to honor artists Robert Gober and Donald Moffett. Attendees dressed up in glam rock-inspired attire for an after dinner dance party DJed by Swizz Beatz.
