The Brooklyn Museum is the United States’ one of the oldest and biggest art museum located in Long Island, New York. It was founded in 1823 as the Brooklyn apprentice’s library aimed to educate young traders. The library was later converted into an art gallery. In 1846, the institute established as a permanent fine art gallery.
In recent years, the museum decided to redesign its gallery and reinstall its collection to make it more accessible to the public and visitors. Vivid wall colour, flowing spaces, multimedia components and dramatic graphics are some of the features that have been added in the reconfiguration of the gallery.
In 2004, the museum inaugurated the newly build spectacular front entrance. The new entrance pavilion named as The Rubin Pavilion is a 15,000 square-foot glass-roofed pavilion that doubled the size of the previous entrance. The practical issue of lightning was resolved with this architectural marvel, now the dark interior of the museums receives more natural light. The entrance pavilion project also involves a public plaza with the area encompassing 80,000 square feet. One of the captivating spots of this public plaza is two water features. One is a fountain which demonstrates “dancing” water jets that can be programmed in various patterns. The other water feature is a shallow reflecting pool on black granite.
In 2007, the Sackler Centre was opened which was influenced by feminist art. This one of its kind section promotes feminist art and explore its meaning. The Sackler section received many awards such as; Design Award of Merit by Society of American Registered Architects, Design Awards: Merit Award by American Institute of Architects, Citation for Design by American Institute of Architects.
